Is it possible to alter the direction of a line start arrow. Some diagrams would benefit from this for clarity.

e.g. [a]>------>[b] rather than [a]<------>[b]

1 Answer 1


There isn't built in way to point both arrows in the same direction, nor is there a shape which does this in the draw.io gallery. Some possible work-arounds:

using the many-to

Use the many-to symbol to give an effect similar to an arrow

use an image

Create an image with the arrow and place it in the desired location.

  • Thanks for your input. This doesn't give the result I am after but simply swaps the start arrow to an end arrow or vice versa. I am trying to achieve an arrow on both ends of the line both pointing in the same direction. For example: A>------>B. Note both arrows are pointing at B.
