Drawing arrows

Hello, I am working on a video that uses arrows to direct the viewer through a process. I have them all set to draw and Only Draw Strokes is checked. When the arrows are drawn, they draw starting from the arrow head. In our review process of the video (which is for training purposes) multiple reviewers have commented that it is distracting for the arrow to be drawn "backwards" (i.e. right to left, on a left --> moving process). Is there a way to change this so the arrow is drawn in the other direction? I have seen this option in text, but not images??

There is not any way to change the direction an image is drawn from within the software. You can control the way a self made (SVG) image is drawn - it will be drawn in the same order it is drawn in your SVG editor. Simple arrows can be drawn easily in an SVG editor such as Inkscape (free) or Adobe Illustrator and imported into VideoScribe. Create your own images.

Are the images you are referring to from the VideoScribe image library? If so, could you show me an example of an image where it is drawn in an illogical direction, such as an arrow being drawn backwards?
