Is it possible to set the direction of arrow symbols in line segments based on field values directly in ArcMap?
No, it is not possible to set the direction of arrows in segments based on field values directly in ArcMap. By default, the direction of the arrows depends on the angle and direction of the segments. However, the direction of the arrows can be changed manually by flipping the line feature during an edit session.
To change the direction of arrows on a line feature, follow the instructions below:
Note: To increase the number of arrow symbols on a line feature, click Edit Symbol in the Symbol Selector window > Line Properties tab > Properties. Increase the number for Number of positions.
Note: The Flip Line tool requires the ArcGIS for Desktop Standard or Advanced license.
