Hey all, hope your ok :blink:

Anyways, how do you create a curved arrow in microsoft word? I mean i'm editing the points and curving like that but they look tacky as hell and aren't even curved, i'm also using the arc but that sucks too because its hard to control and isn't curved properly for me need (Which is for creating a DFD).

I tried searching google but to no avail.

The ones in auto shapes are tacky, have you tried just using a normal font with a curved arrow in?

Use the "curve tool" anyway, but if you dont want the "snapping" effect, hold down the <alt> key while drawing, this makes it a little easier.

This <alt> key thingy works with other drawings to --> you know, f.ex. when you draw a straight line and you try to move it, but it always seems to snap at a place you dont want... :blink: holding alt key you can move it to the exact place you want, no snapping.
