Curved arrow
« on: June 07, 2010, 03:56:17 PM »
All,

Sorry for asking such an easy question, but...

Is there a stencil for a 'fat' curved arrow? I am thinking of something which would look similar to the Elbow or Hollow Connect (from the Connectors template), but which is curved, not a right angle. Ideally, I would like arrows which have a 90 degree turn and a 180 degree turn.

Thx.

I can't recall if I've seen such a shape, but, I was feeling creative, so I made a couple.  It gave me a chance for shamelessly plug my rectangular callout shapes, too.   ::)

All of the callouts are from a single master, see Rectangular Callout:  smart and flexible (http://visguy.com/vgforum/index.php?topic=1472.0)

The attached Visio file goes thru the process of creating these arrows.  There is one step left to make these shape really spiffy.  See this link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa200966(v=office.10).aspx ... or just lock the aspect ratio (right click shape > Format > Protection > select aspect ratio).

Enjoy!

Hey!  Here is a somewhat related article by VisioGuy.  It does completely circular arrows:  http://www.visguy.com/2006/10/09/circular-multi-arrows/
