Chapter 2. An Introduction to ShapeSheet... > A Smarter Arrow SmartShape Symbol

A Smarter Arrow SmartShape Symbol

Now, I know that that is an incredible amount of information to digest. However, a thorough understanding of all the possibilities in both the Shape Transform and the Geometry sections will enable you to begin to create your own SmartShape symbols with much more confidence. It's time for another lab exercise. This will build on the smart arrow you completed in the first exercise in this chapter.

Remember how the arrow did not remain properly proportioned when you changed the height of the arrow, but did when you adjusted the width? This is due to the fact that you “hard-coded” in a number for the back edge of the arrowhead from the tip. As you all are aware, hard-coding is a definite no-no, and now you have seen the results of that type of behavior.
