How To Make Arrows In Adobe InDesign CC

hey there in this video, we're going to look at our heads and some more advanced stroke things. It's not super exciting, but we all need to know how to make arrows and there's some little tricks you can use to help your workflow. Alright. I'm on page three and let's look at our heads first. So I've got the line tool going to drag out of line, I'm going to make it bit thicker. Okay, make sure my stroke is at black and I've got a thickness of five point Now, the stroke panel might look like this, okay, where it's quite small and you can only change the weight. You can double click this little tab here and it gets journals. Okay. And get a lot more options and this is what we're looking for. So the first one is the start and end basically this is easy where you get your arrowheads. So depending on how you've drawn your line, so start is where I first started drawing. So I want the opposite way. So I want you to be there a little barbed end one, it's not the one I like. Okay, I'm just goin...

g to have the, I just want the triangle and the start, I might do, I don't know, I feel like an Austin powers love male symbol thing. It's one of those. Now, one of the things and the new things for 2018, is that when you scale that up? Okay, you end up getting kind of like disproportionately sized ends and beginnings, you can see like that, it's a joint almost compared to that because the strokers are the same around the outside. But now what you can do is see scale, it's kind of a new thing. So I am going to scale this ended up. You can see here, I can kind of raise it up Okay. And I can make it nice and big there to kind of match everything else there. So that's a new feature. It's not really a feature, but it's something we've all been missing. And one of the little tricks I did there was, can you see I'm making it smaller by clicking it and it's just going down 1% at a time slowly. Okay, if I hold shift and click that exact same option, can you see it does it in multiples of 10. So I find this just really handy thing for anything. Okay, if you want to raise the weight of this. Okay, but you want to do it in big chunks. Hold shift any sort of option here with a number. If you want to make this go up by 1%, I just click it. But if I hold shift and click it, it goes up by multiples of 10. Okay, so what is that? It's looking kind of cool. They're that size. I think I like it. All right. And one of the other things for strokes that we, you know, it's useful is I'm going to zoom in on this thing here and I guess what I want to show you is it's a little hard to see. Maybe I'll change the stroke to black. So it's easier. Maybe a bit more contrast. Yeah, there it is. So you can see my line here is actually this rectangle I drew is actually the center of it. So watch this. If I draw a rectangle, when I let go, watch the black line straddles at either side. Okay. It's a little hard to see but you see it's actually going left and right of this and that can be a bit of a pain. Okay, Because you're trying to get things to line up, but they're lining up to the uh you know, to this center bit here. So what you can do with it selected is you've got options over here to align stroke and by default it's left and right. But here I can go actually the inside or all the way on the outside or just straddling the center. Another thing you might look at is the unfortunately named but cap. Okay. So if I draw a line here and I make it nice and thick. Ok, It's got what's called a butt cap, which means it's just if I grab the line again, can we just get to the end and then completely butts up next to the you know, the end of the end point. So that's what these ones here for. You probably won't use the third one, but the second one here, the round cap is, yeah, kind of adds a, I don't know, it's just a different style of line. Okay. And this end one here is kind of a block capture. It goes all the way around that side here and then there's the butt cap. One last thing you can do is um if I put an arrow head on this one and I go you arrowhead, can you see it? Used the end of the line as the tip of the arrow head. Okay. And that might not be what you need. Okay, you might want to go through and say see you here is using the edge of the line, which this kind of uses the end of the line to start the year ahead. Okay, so it depends on what you need. Just know that you got a few little options were getting a bit nerdy and a bit boring. Let's get on to the next video. I love the next one, It's fun. Let's make that flowery thing in the next video by now
