Does an edge type need to end in a node?

Hello. I am trying to make some for loops using yEd and I can't seem to find a way to stop the arrow without connecting it to a node. If someone could help I would appreciate it.

Yes, an edge does need to connect to a node. However, the start node and the end node may be the same. Moreover, the connection point (called a "port") may be moved out of the connected node. To move an edge's connection point, select the edge and change its "Source Port X/Y" or "Target Port X/Y" properties.

Another possibility to make it look like an edge does not connect nodes is to make the corresponding nodes invisible (by setting the nodes' "Fill Color" and "Line Color" properties to "No Color").
