Connectors are essentially some of the shapes found within the Lines category of the Shapes gallery in PowerPoint. To understand why only some of these lines can work as connectors, we first need to understand what a connector is. A connector is a line that creates a link that joins two shapes or any other slide objects to show a relationship. These connectors are linked to the slide objects they are connected—this means that they move automatically when the linked objects are moved.

The Shapes gallery in PowerPoint consists of various shapes, both open and closed. Closed shapes are ones that do not have a “visible” beginning or an end such as the Rectangle, Ellipse, and Triangle shapes. Open shapes have a “visible” beginning and an end. An example of an open shape is a straight point-to-point line.
