The Arrowline tool draws a line between two points and adds an arrow to the second mouse click.

Position and Edit

Left mouse click where you want the arrow line to begin, move the mouse to where you want the arrowpoint to appear, left mouse click to set the arrowpoint.

The startpoint and endpoint coordinates can be viewed and edited in the Arrowline Properties dialog box.

To change the direction and length of the arrowline, select with left mouse click and drag either end handle of the line and move it to a new location.

Select the middle of the arrowline and drag, this will maintain the current arrowline's orientation in a new position.

The ends of the arrowline will snap to each interval's vertical reference, but not to any data points.

The arrowlines can also be extended in either direction, and the arrowlines' location can be locked in place on the chart.
