Dear all

A complete beginner writing here with a simple question, is there a way to use custom symbols for displaying vectors in CFD-Post?

We can select from a number gf symbols of which Crosshair and Fish3D are but two examples. Judging from this I would think that an option to use a custom shape would be useful. Say I wanted a bird instead of a fish for example...

But the shape I would like to have is actually as simple as can be - instead of a line arrow I just simply want a line, the length of which is determined by velocity. Really, just the line arrow without the arrowhead.

Even if it is not documented, perhaps there is a file somewhere with the symbol code that can be fiddled with. I imagine that implementation of a line instead of an arrow line cannot be very difficult.

Any ideas or solutions? Thank you everyone in advance.
