Arrowhead the same color as the line...
I've created a couple thousands of water velocity vectors and want to represent them as arrow. The problem is that when I create my line and add the arrowhead (which is black as the default) the color stays the same when I choose my symbology for the line (I have 18 classes). So I have blue-green-yellow-orange-red lines all with black arrowhead. Is there a way to make the arrowheads to change color when I chose the color ramp for my classes? Or do I have to change 18 lines styles separately. I could create points at the end of each line, give it the attribute and angle of the line, use that to change the rotation of a symbol to which I'd give the same symbology as the line, but it seems quite a job for something that should be simple (I mean, I change the color of my line, the arrowhead should logically change as well - otherwise, there's something on which the development team should work... ;)
Mapping Center Answer:
It sounds like you have a "lock" on the arrowhead part of your symbol which is not allowing the color to change when you apply the color ramp. If you edit the symbol using the Symbol Editor, you'll see a lock/unlock symbol to the right of each symbol layer. From the online documentation, "About creating new symbols":
"Symbols can be made up of more than one layer. By default, the first layer is unlocked and each subsequent layer is locked."
If you change the arrowhead layer of each symbol from from locked to unlocked, applying the color ramp should change the whole symbol and not just the line portion.
