as a workaround, if you need the visual element, you can create an arc as a custom shape with connection points.

It adds some extra steps to the workflow, because you have to draw lines to the connect to the arc, and then another to continue to the entity. But, you can then move the 'cross over' around and lines will stay connected.


after moving :

enter image description here

custom arc code:

<shape h="0.5" w="2.0" aspect="variable" strokewidth="inherit">
    <constraint x="0" y="1" perimeter="1"/>
    <constraint x="1" y="1" perimeter="1"/>
      <move x="0" y="0.5"/>
      <arc x="2.0" y="0.5" rx="1" ry="0.5" large-arc-flag="0" sweep-flag="1" x-axis-rotation="0"/>

Line jumps are now natively supported.

When a line is selected, there is a "Line jumps" option under the style tab.

    if you're not seeing the line jump, trying bringing your line to the front using Arrange > To Front
