Right, thanks for the info. Don't you think however that it was in fact
better, as it gave you the option of adjusting the arrow head independantly
from the line? Now your options are fairly limited in comparison.
Also, the problem with with creating two lines/arrows as you suggested is
that when you have a line that bends, you have to put in quite a bit of work
to ensure that the arrow head follows the same contour as the line,
otherwise it just looks untidy - yeah you guessed it I have hundreds of
arrows in my book.. :-)

Do you perhaps know what version of Scribus still has that 'feature'?
