How can I connect two waypoints with a polyline over the edge of the map

When connecting two waypoints on opposite sides of the International Date Line(roughly) with a polyline the line will not cross over the dateline instead it goes all the way around my map to get to my second point. How can I force these lines to take the shortest path instead of going aroung the globe.

 

 

The best example I ca think of is that if I have points over Hawaii and Japan then the polyline connects them by going all the way around the map instead of the closest distance between them.
