I need to draw an arrow on a layout. Before when I needed this, I simply used a button with no function. This time, the button's formats are a bit limited; is there no way to make an arrow from a line object?
An arrow png icon file? Lots of Unicode arrows. →☞➽➳➤⇰
If that is what you mean.
Those options will work; I was just surprised they didn't have it natively.
There are also arrows available in the button icons in FMP 16 - all you need to do is pick one then remove all the button formatting and voila, an arrow that you can colour as well.
I had used button icons before which worked nicely for that. For this, I was hoping for a more “excel like” implementation of arrows. Not a big deal, again just surprising it wasn’t there (I hadn’t really had a need for arrows on a layout until now).
If you would like to be able to create arrows that point in directions other than right angles, you may want to vote for this product request:
