Arrows with Bezier-curves

This is a suggested improvment of the Arrow/Stars-module. I often want to make arrows that bend smoothly and not so bruscly as the Arrow-module does today. An easy way of adding this feature is that the line that makes up the body of the arrow (that is from the pointy part to the bottom/back) is made as a straight Bezier-curve instead. It is then easy to enter the Vector-module and drag the control points and thus make the arrow bend softly. As I can see it, this should not be difficult to implement in the code today.

This is a very good suggestion. Of course, with the help of the Bridge- and LineArt modules you can already do this, but indeed in the Star-department of V-Objects the beziers are implemented, so perhaps in version 2 we can expect 'your' function.

I think it is best if you enter a suggestion like this in the 'Bug'-Tracking System [www.calamus.net]. Then it will be posted directly to the programmer concerned.
