DOORS NG: Link Explorer: Possible to allow links to cross?

 I was wondering if there was any way to make allow the link explorer to cross links.

Two customer requirements each trace into two system level requirements (4 links).

In this simple scenario any human would make four boxes and draw two lines horizontally and two transversally crossing over to the other side. Of course this would lead to links crossing over one another, but it would be immediately clear what is meant by any reader.

By increasing the trace length it is possible to display the second source artifact and with some manual adjustment one can even display it at the right position, but the link explorer shows 6 artifacts because the source artifacts show up twice.

By allowing that links cross this could be resolved. Is it possible?

this is possible with an IBM Product called (ex RELM) ELO Insights.

Thank you for your answer. I would prefer to stay with the tools that are already present. For now I will play around a bit with the integrated report builder.
