    Default arrows on arcs

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Where would I find the place to turn on and off the arrows that show at the ends of arcs when highlighted? Using AutoCad 2016.

    What arrows might those be? When I highlight an arc all I see are grips.

    I guess I am actually talking about grips. When I highlight an arc I get an arrow off both ends of the arc. They can be used to extend or retract the length of the arc. I am using 2010 LT but a coworker using 2016 Full does not see those arrows.

    Grips can be enabled/disabled on the Selection tab of the Options dialog box or via the GRIPS system variable (at the command line) but I think it is an all or nothing approach.

    Set GRIPS to 0 to hide them.

    Arc's with arrow grips are usually splines or trimmed ellipses.
