Here's an example:

  1. Create two rectangles.

  2. Select the "polyline" drawing tool.

  3. Connect two rectangles using the polyline.  Insert at least
     two joints.

  4. Select the move tool.

  5. Select the "Smart Links" button on the bottom of the window.

  6. There are three options: "Off", "Move", and "Slide".

The "Move" and "Slide" options cause different move behaviors.  One of
them probably works the way you want it to.
