I am trying to use arrows to display points. The arcmap worked nicely to rotate arrow according to the angle field (layer property/symbology/advanced/rotation), however the middle of the arrow sit on the point. I want the arrow to start from point. How can I do it?


You can adjust the offset of your symbol. This may allow you to point your arrow directly at your points.

  • Thanks! It solved my problem. I am aware of offset but somehow I thought it would not work when rotated. I was wrong. Thank you so much! – Wenwei Xu Apr 6 '16 at 19:52
