If a new version of BCC is just around the corner, how about adding some curvy arrows to the basic geometric shapes? I usually have to go over to Adobe Photo Shop Elements V6, and use that to do it, and it doesn't do it so well, but at least it makes an effort.

I'd really like some arrows that show a definite curve. Adobe Photo Shop Elements V6 is much harder to use for manipulating a few basic shapes.

Probably we'll add more arrows. For now, try this:

1. Choose Edit > Special Characters from the BCC menu. The Symbols category contains the Arrows section. Drag and drop an arrow into your design. To make it bigger or smaller, use the Size tool in the Text tab of the Inspector (the arrow is a text symbol).

2. Use Art Text that can be launched from BCC in the "plug-in mode". Click on "a" in the toolbar. Double-click on text in Art Text to open the pop-up Layer Content panel. Switch it to the Icons section and select Arrows in the Category pop-up list. Select View > Geometry Panel in the Art Text menu to open the Transformation tool and deform the arrow icon. When the arrow is ready, click the Link Back button in the main window.
