From my few days of working in AD I believe that one can only making arrowheads in AD by creating a separate graphic and attaching it on to a shaft. The arrowhead can thus be manipulated as a separate part of a group. Is that correct or does AD have an "arrowhead maker" that I have not found yet?


I should add that I imported at lot of my Illustrator work. Arrowheads I made in Illustrator come out beautifully in AD. Hats off to you at AD who thought of all of us with tons of previous work in Illustrator. This makes AD more fabulous than ever!

The is an arrow tool on the fly-out shapes tool (the one that by default shows the triangle shape, below the rectangle, ellipse, & rounded rectangle tools). This makes arrow shapes with single or double heads, & allows changing the shape of the arrowheads & thickness of the shaft connecting them.
