multi-tree square - need more than 6 branches

I am creating a site map of a dynamic website and I need to use a "multi-tree
square" connector to do a one-to-many type relationship between the homepage
and more than 10 pages that can be linked to from the homepage.

The issue is that the "multi-tree square" will only allow for 6 branches and
I cannot figure out how to add more branches. does anyone know if this is
possible?

any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks for your reply. I already did that and it will solve the problem it's
just not as easy to deal with as it would be if a single tree could have more
branches. It doesnt make much sense to me that they would limit it to 6
branches.

Anyway, thanks again.

The shapes are created with a maximum number of branches, but most are
hidden so as you "add" branches, you are actually unhiding them. There is a
tradeoff between complexity and speed and the designer of that shape decided
that six would be the most workable maximum. It is possible to add extra
arms, but it is not as easy as dropping an extra shape.

The one downside of dropping extra shapes is that the user "sees" the
multiple shapes as a single shape, but any program interrogating the drawing
will see multiple shapes. For example if the shape was a router, the program
would report you have two routers with eight connections rather than a
single router with sixteen connectors.
