Line/stroke ending in arrows
Line start and end should allow arrows, triangle, or circles
(this covers some topics already tracked elsewhere on UserVoice: please upvote those other suggestions if you're interested in dotted lines and CSS-driven styling).
In CSS and other adobe tools we have Stroke or Border options like type or style (dotted, dashed) start and end (arrows, triangle, circles). In XD we do currently have weight and color options, though it will be amazing to add these options to reflect dotted arrow line or dashed border around a rectangle etc.
Several of the items originally mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already:
- Dotted/dashed lines: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13024749-dotted-and-dashed-line-border-styles
- Accept CSS as input for styling XD elements: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12926715-use-css-to-specify-object-appearance
The only suggestion I think we don’t have listed yet is arrow-head line endings. To keep the request list tidy, I will change the title here so it is specifically focused on that one idea. Please upvote the other links above so your interest in those features is captured too.
Thanks for your feedback!

Hello AdobeXD Product Team,
Would you please implement the basics?
From the beginning of AdobeXD, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 till now 2021 and still no Arrows?
This is a basic UI component for every designer. We all know how to make them but there are more important things to do than to draw an arrow. :-)
Looking and unable to find, only brings a User a dosage of frustration and disappointment, a waste of our valuable time for searching so easy built-in and ready components as in every other Adobe program and Sketch and Figma.
I am actually really shocked after 15+ years of being in the industry. I have found so many things already, which do not work correctly, do not display correctly or are just missing.
This is basic to have arrows. I have started to use AdobeXD just recently, and I will come back to Sketch and Figma, just because I feel AdobeXD is not involving as per Users needs, wants and likes.
I kindly suggest listening to your audience and as promised in early 2016, 2017 and so to implement arrows and every other feature, which we all ask politely.
Would you please let me know and every other User, when all Users feedback will be implemented by the Product Team and the high quality of the product to the standards of the present market will be provided?

2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and now 2021, this basic feature has still not been added. Such a slow development despite clearly having the team and resources to do so!

Guys, you forgot the arrows. Ask Illustrator nicely I'm sure you can have theirs
Three years and still no possibility to create arrows? Please make it happen! :)
This should be a core feature. Added to the list of features I no longer have because I switched to XD. Very poor product.

Please don't make me use Indesign or PPT to create my flow charts :)
I would love for XD to be my one stop for flows and wires!
Yes please! Trying to show screen flows with arrows is a basic UX deliverable, and it cant be done easily in any Adobe tool. I shouldn't be expected to export all the screens and do this in Illustrator.
This only saves time for presenting prototypes. Please include this feature!
How is this still not in here? This does not fall under the earlier items like dotted and dashed.

Lunacy is light-years ahead of Adobe XD, can't wait till I'm no longer forced to use this tool. 6 Months of HELL!
it is unbelievable that this feature is NOT included yet in XD, just can't fathom how this could have happend...

Currentlly I do a lot of Architecture Information and Wireframe stage design and having an option for line edit with arrowhead endings is a deal breaker between XD and Sketch.
The closer the function will look like in Illustrator the better.

Upvoting to get a line/stroke with optional end-of-line additions, like arrows and circles. UX people do A LOT of user flows and this is a basic necessity for a user flow. Which is why I'm surprised that it hasn't been done for 4 YEARS.
Ken Ruiz commented
I am upvoting this need for basic arrows and line types within XD. Lets get it going Adobe!
Victor T commented
Wow, Adobe after having developed so many applications, couldn't think of having a simple arrow at the end of a line for an application that is mainly developed for creating flow charts, wireframes, UI kits, etc., is simply unbelievable... Please add this ASAP!

+1 for arrows
-------------------------> need arrow endpoints
Yes! Please add - this feels SO basic.
I can't believe this isnt in the app already!
Need me some arrows, please!
