Arrow head Styles

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it is possible to edit or customize the arrowhead styles in the Attribute Palette? I would like to make a unique leader line with two line weights.

Also, why can't we add arrow heads to polylines?

You can add arrowheads to polylines. At the bottom of the Attributes Pallet, there are two buttons next to the Arrowhead menu. One button will add an arrowhead to the beginning of your line, the other adds it to the end.

While you can edit the them, I don't know a straightforward way to customize the arrowhead styles on the pallet. If you're adept at VectorScript, you can modify virtually everything. . .but I did say straightforward.

Could you create your custom leader line as a symbol and drop it in where you need it? You can create a custom symbol arrowhead for use with Callouts, but you aren't able to directly make a leader line with two line weights.

Good luck,

Yes, you're right. I can add them to Polylines. Must be new in VW 12.

No, I'm not familar enough with Vectorscript.
