Hi,

I am trying to work out how to do a 90% right arrow in Visio 2007. So I am trying to get the shape like the following. The supplied arrows don't seem to have it, unless I am missing something.

So hopefully somebody can tell me how to bend an existing arrow or get a shape that looks like the one I am looking for. (The shape I am using I got from PowerPoint but I can't scale it properly).

Thanks,

Ward

Hi whorsfall

You should try and download additional "Stencils" and or shapes for Visio if none of your current stencils contains the shape required.
"Additional shape ans stencils"

You would also be able to find other 3rd party stencils on the net

I think the curvable arrow you're looking is there... it's just in a non-intuitive place!

In Visio 2007: select File>Shapes>General>Blocks

Look for a shape called "Curved arrow". When you drop it on the page, experiment by dragging the gold and green control handles and you should be able to make it do just about anything you want.

BTW, this stencil opens by default in some templates, e.g., File>New>General>Block Diagram
