How to insert an arrow with 4.3.10

Recommended Posts

With the latest "upgrade" I can no longer figure out how to insert an arrow on a photo.

I found the shapes tool, selected an arrow, selected a fill, and style, but I can't seem to place the arrow on the photo.

Once by pure chance I got an arrow to appear but then could not change the color, or rotate it.

Thank you!

Hi @rowski - welcome to the forum :)


Make sure you have no selection active (press Ctrl + D). If there is one - the shape will be restricted to inside the selection (usually somewhere else than where you want it)

Hi @rowski :)


It may be easier for you to draw the arrow on a new layer and, whilst it is still selected, move the corners to align it.  Then flatten you image :)
