Arrowheads can only be centre aligned

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is by design or not but the use of arrowheads on a shape's outline renders the the align of inside or outside to a center alignment. 

All in all I am quite enjoying this new beta.

Personally I find it a bit strange that arrowheads are being applied to closed shapes.  That doesn't really impress me as particularly logical (if the shape is closed, where does it start and end?)

I was just reporting, but perhaps one would use it for directional information. [shrug emoticon]

Yes, two different things - it just stuck out again when I was looking at it.

In a shape that you've created yourself as curves, the start and end point may indeed be extremely important, and not being able to add an arrowhead (or be forced to unclose it) is not great either...
