Arrow (with a line thickness) to link 2 objects

In Balsamiq, what can I use to have an arrow to link objects (arrow start from one object ending on another object ? or from an icon tyo an object, or whatever…

I am not able to find that?

We do have an arrow markup control, @simple45, but it you cannot specify the line thickness. Besides that, it’s pretty versatile. Is that what you’re looking for?

Again :slight_smile: :
I am looking for arrows with a line thickness. Does anyone have an idea?

Sorry @simple45, I wasn’t sure if the line thickness was important as it wasn’t mentioned in the body of your message.

There isn’t a good way to do this, unfortunately. Can you tell me a little more about why you need line thickness here? Any context you can give me will help when I write up the story.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

I have to design some flows. The arrows I am seeing are too thick…

Fair enough. I’ll give the story a little nudge with your comments.

Nudge Nudge.

As I user I need to set varying line thicknesses to better visually differentiate between various flows in my diagram. And, just because.

So far I use colors and transparency of the arrows to represent these.

Hello Alexey,

How do you used transparency to put an arrow more thinner?

Hi @simple45,
I use opacity property for the arrows to show the difference:

Thanks Alexey but the arrow is not more thinner :).

Again, only options are color and transparency, so I use these limited features :wink:
