Here's a great tip - double-click on the connection line that you want to bend:

A new yellow anchor will appear which one can then drag around to organize things nicely.

Bonus tip - one can add multiple bend points to a connection.

To remove a specific anchor, simply double-click on it again, repeat for each yellow point.

Additionally, you can move the connection label to any bend point. Click and drag the label to desired bend point.
