Custom North Arrows

Recommended Posts

So I found a cute Compass I want to use for a North Arrow.


I use the North Arrow tool and see 10 "Configs"

I see the "North Arrow" file in the Resources Browser.

I Edit that file and see 27 existing arrows - now 28 with my new one.


How do I change the "Configs" to use one of the other 27 arrows?


Thanks 🙂

Based on THIS older thread on this topic, I don’t think you can have a custom North arrow show up in the PIO dialogue without scripting. It seems the way to do this is to create a page-based symbol of the your North Arrow and use that.
