Select From Provided Library

EazyDraw provides a large set of standard arrows, easily selected and applied to any graphic. An extensible library of custom shapes is provided standard with EazyDraw.

Use Your Own Arrow Shape

Any EazyDraw graphic may be dropped onto the Arrow palette's editing view. These shapes are easily modified in-place on the convenient editing view. Or drag an arrow shape back to an EazyDraw drawing for full editing and design modifications.

Color and Stroke

Simple arrows have their color derived from the host path. Or, independently set a fill and outline color.

Scale and Distort

A Free (Affine transform) Transform interface is provided to scale, or distort (Shear, Skew, or Rotate) the arrow shape. This transform will also let you precisely position the arrow with respect to the graphic reference point (start, end, or sequential along point).

Arrows Along Path

Much like a brush capability, apply any arrow shape along the full length of the path, not just at the end. Great for maps and instructional diagrams.

Progressive Arrows

Apply any arrow shape progressively along the path of a graphic. You have full control over the interval, either by count or spacing. Apply this capability with a Sequential progressive Free Transform for interesting spin, depth and fade effects.

Precise Tip Placement

Two methods provided for precise arrow tip placement and clean appearance. In many cases it is desired that the precise exact tip of the arrow is placed at the exact end point (line center) of the defined line or path - in the Relief mode EazyDraw makes all calculations necessary for this placement, and the host path is drawn with relief so the finite line width of the path does not print and cause an unsightly interference. The other artistic mode allows user placement of the arrow tip.

Simple -- Easy
The "primary" (shown) tab view provides the easy application of simple arrows to either end of graphic - plain line or complex path. All of the advanced features stay out of the way when not needed. Just pick a shape from the popup menu and click a checkbox to add an arrow.
Color & Style
The Style (not shown) tab is used to define the fill and stroke style of the Arrow. The color, outline and drawing details for the arrow are available to define independent of the host graphic. This gives you full design freedom - if needed.
Custom View
The arrow palette has a separate scratch pad view that is used to accept the "drop" of any Bezier Path. This view is used to prepare a shape for use as a custom arrow. It has automatic smart history function that remembers edited shapes for re-use.
