    Hey, this is a bit of an odd question, but I recently came across a sample of arrows (for Greek sentence diagramming) written with MSWord (picture attached, sorry for the low quality -- my cell's camera is horrible). The author said he had used the draw function.

    Is there any word programs on the Mac that could do this same look? I have Office, OpenOffice, NeoOffice, Mellel, etc.

    Thanks!

    P.S. If the picture is too blurry I can try to take a better one, just let me know.

    From what I can make out in the picture I've done the same type of arrows using office. I can't specifically remember if I've done it with Mac Office, but pretty sure it works fine. Even OpenOffice can likely do it. Have you tried yet?

    I have Word, and use it pretty regularly, but how would I make little arrows like that? The only arrows I've seen in there are the large blue ones, but they seem a bit bulky to use for this kind of a thing.

    If you right-click on the arrow and choose the format option it should provide a way to change that. From memory, there's a drop down box for the different arrow head types. The choices will depend on your version of Office.
