I've posted about this before - over 2 years ago when you asked for suggestions for SP3 ... I really, really need lines with endings ie an arrow head. The current selection of lines is adequate, but the possibility to add arrow heads/buttons to one end (or even both) would make a huge difference to my work flow. Also useful would be the option to add custom lines and a bezier line ....

More precise snapping of lines is needed - if I snap one line to another at 90 degrees (that’s a 1pt line at 150%), there is a slight overshoot and no way to get it flush (save for zooming up to 400%).

These points have been hammered home to me as I've just done a complicated flow chart in SP - I trialled a couple of specific diagram programs and neither was intuitive or easy as SP (but they did have lots of line choices)!

Which begs the inevitable question - what news of SP3?

Just bumping this up the request list:
1. Selection of line endings needed e.g. arrow, button, single ended, double ended.
2. Better control of line ends - very difficult/impossible to snap lines together, yet in the Spline Tool ends snap together perfectly. To extend an existing line, the double arrow obscures the end of the line, making things even harder.

Thanks, we'll consider these features for future improvements. I hope that the Product Manager will set a higher priority for this functionality since you aren't alone who are asking for it.
