Arrow Head Line thickness

(1/2) > >>

I recently (2 days back) discovered the dark arts of Shapesheets and it gave hope to my long lost dream of using visio for Bond graphs.
See, bond graphs uses 3 arrows a half arrow, a vertical line and a half arrow with vertical line. [Pic Attached]

Here are my steps:

* Open visio - > Developer Tab - > New Stencil
* Set page Size to 10 mm x 10 mm
* Go to Drawing Explorer -> New Pattern -> (Line End, Scaled)
* Create the shape ___\ and set Pin pos to Bottom Right
Awesome Everything Works EXCEPT

* The line thickness of arrow doesn't change depending on connected line thickness.
* The included arrows scale according to the line thickness. That doesn't happen in my case.
What am I doing wrong?
Is there a way to see the shape sheet of original arrows in Visio to see how it's done?

Set arrow line thickness to 0 pt.

I tried it, but it only works when set to no scale.
And the result was disappointing, all details "swallowed" by the thick line.
Do you happen to have a good working example?

Yes, it's true.
I am attaching an example.
