Select symbol for arrowhead

Select symbol for arrowhead

Currently revit allows us to adjust the arrowheads of stair arrows & leaders to vary the length and angle of the arrowhead.

We would like the ability to insert an arrowhead symbol (annotation category) rather than using the limited arrowheads currently available.

This allows for freedom in the graphic representation of our drawings. We are designers afterall.. the small things count 🙂

While completely opening up Arrowheads to any custom symbol would be awesome (and is something I've been wanting since we first started using Revit years ago), I have a feeling that it's not very likely to happen, so I'd suggest the following:
 
  1. For "grab" leaders, we used a custom "graboval" tick in AutoCAD that was two semi-circles joined by straight lines. It would be nice to have another "Pill" or "oval-ish" Arrow Style to choose from [in addition to "Arrow", "Dot", etc.] with options to set the radius and line length (for example, our "graboval" had semi-circles of 0.045" radius connected by 0.045" line segments). We currently use an un-filled "Dot", but it looks either too "wide" or too "short". Even if it was just like a double of the "Loop" Arrowhead type (no straight line segments - just a curve), that would be fine, too.
  2. Also, it would be nice to have a Arrowhead Type parameter that would stop the leader line at the edge of the tick, instead of going to the center.
I submitted this to Autodesk previously, but when their feature-request system was still "closed".

Additionally, it would be nice to override arrow head by instance instead of having to create a new text style.

An option to adjust the line weight of the actual Arrowhead would be good.

Currently this option is only available for the "Heavy End Tick Mark".

Thanks for taking the time to submit your idea. Unfortunately, this idea did not get the support of the community over the last 6 months and as such we will not be pursuing it at this time. Please feel free to rework (titles and clear descriptions are really important) and resubmit this one down the road.
