I'm using tikz and want to have an arrow from one node that leaves and goes straight for a while and then splits into two arrows going to different nodes.
Here is a picture I drew a while ago. I now want to replace it with a tikz figure:
Notice that one of the vertical edges goes straight for a while and splits into 2. Is there a way to do this cleanly? Let's say that the source is named
source and the targets are named
I could specify the in and out angles so that they come out of
source with the same slope, but I really want them to be the same edge for a while, not just be close to each other.
Bonus: is there an easy way to make the edge dashed while it overlaps a box to give the impression it's going behind the box?
