Arrow Heads and Tails for Lines and Paths

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a diagram which requires arrow heads and tails to many lines and curve paths in my project. I haven't been able to locate a tool that lets me select a path and assign a arrow head and tail (in the desktop app, and iOS app). I assumed, that like all basic stroke options, I'd find the arrow head options in the stroke studio / window, but it doesn't seem to be there.

Please advise. Thanks in advance!

Arrow heads and tails have been on the roadmap for a long time, so we’ll eventually get them in a free 1.x update, but meanwhile you have to resort to a workaround such as adjusting the stroke’s pressure profile or manually adding triangles or chevrons to the ends.
