In UML diagram, how to keep (or remake) the connections square with the x and y axes even after dragging?

It looks clear when auto-generated, but as soon as you drag a class, the connections turn into straight diagonal lines that criss-cross everything and look a mess.

F5 appears to completely rebuild the diagram, including putting the object back where it was before I moved it.
What I am looking for is the ability to adjust the relative location of the classes, interfaces, modules, etc, with respect to one another and keep the connections orthagonal. Otherwise after you move several items, the diagram starts to look like a pile of pick-up-sticks.;)
