The attached model has as input a Vector, which Dissolved (QGis dissolve) and used as input for Regular sampling Grid. I named the output of Qgis Dissolve as "Dissolved" and it is graphically shown as the output. In Regular sampling grid I selected "Dissolve.shp" as the Input but it is no graphically selected as such.

Im raising the priority level on this one because this bug interferes with the preparation of support materials.

This is not a bug, it is intentional. The output element in the canvas just represents that the algorithm output is going to generate a definitive output of the model. The link is done from the output in the algorithm (you can expand the list of outputs clicking the + link in the lower part of the algorithm.

That way, i think it's not so meesy with more arrows than needed.

I put it in low priority, since we might consider this idea in the future for improving the model, but, since that will probably not happen in the short term, you can prepare your support materials safely with the current state of the modeler.
