How to snap edge to group boundary?

0 votes
I use groups to define procedures and some nodes have an exit condition that exits the procedure. In this case I would like an edge to start at a node and end with the arrow at the boundary of the group. Is this possible? I imagine I could do it by hiding a node behind the group and snapping to that, but it is kludgy and a pain when I need to resize.

Thanks!

Of course, it is possible to connect an edge to a group node. The same rules used for starting edges at a group node apply to ending an edge at a group node.

I think I was not clear in what I was asking - I know I can connect to the outside of a group, in this case the node is inside the group. So for example, a node is inside a group. I want to connect an edge from that node to the border of the group it resides in, so the internal border of the group.
