Polylines/Busellato/Autolink

I need to know if it is possible to draw a polyline with one end being zero
and the other being anything greater than zero. I am trying to desiginate
the tool direction with this polyline that appears to look like an arrow.

If anyone is using Autolink to convert their drawings into G-Code and can
assign a tool direction in another way, I would be interested in reading how
you are accomplishing this. Thanks Melissa

Do you mean z elevation other than 0? 3Dpolys will do that or changing your ucs.
If you mean width, that is easy, built into the pline command (starting
width/ending width).

You need to make sure your polyline is drawn in the direction of your wanted tool path. select your polyline and hit edit vertex and make sure its moving in the direction that you want. the polyline arrow needs to be on an endpoint, and needs some elevation to ramp in. hope this helps.
