Is this possible?

I have a complex diagram and in order to help follow the paths I would like to have an arrow in the middle of the connector as well as the end to indicate direction. If I can have multiple arrows along the path that would be great as well.

I'm using Visio 2010 now but if there is a solution for any version I am open to it.

I asked this at VisGuy.com and they gave me the answer.


The answer is line patterns. Setup a line pattern then use that pattern for your connector.


The other way is to click on the line to open a label box and insert a symbol from Wingding3. This can be moved to anywhere on the line, formatted in any way a font can and layered using 'bring forward' etc.
