Help! How to make a "curved arrow" in FWMX? - Macromedia Fireworks

Hello all, I need to know how to make a "curved arrow" in FWMX. I have made several attempts but can't find a way to get good looking results. My latest attempt can be seen here: http://sonnierart.com/public/arrow50.gif , but it is too hand-drawn looking. There's GOT to be a better way. I need the arrows to wrap-around an oval object in the middle. Help is appreciated, Thanks! New fan of Macromedia products. Referring URLs http://sonnierart.com/public/arrow50.gif...

    Thanks PJR, that works good. I had never used the knife tool before and forgot about the "Commands > Creative > add arrowheads".

    Thanks for your help!

    You can also use the Wedgie tool by John Dunning. If you can't find it
    you may download it here with instructions on installing it:
