When working with ArcMap Cartographic Line Symbols, it is possible to specify marker symbols to be placed along the line. Common examples are arrows at either or both ends of the line.
It is possible to offset these marker symbols a specified distance from the endpoints of the line or along the line, by setting an offset on the marker symbol. This process requires selecting the line marker symbol option Rotate symbol to follow line.
Offsetting does not work properly if using Arrow Marker Symbols and the rotation setting is Rotate symbol to follow line.
Use a Simple Marker Symbol or Cartographic Marker Symbol instead of an Arrow Marker Symbol.
For arrowheads, follow the steps below, starting from the Line Properties tab of the Symbol Property Editor dialog box.
