Why "Begin Arrow type" feature does not get applied to basic shapes?

M H Dileep Kumar 1 Reputation point

If we have a basic rectangle shape in a MS Visio file.
When I try to Set “Begin Arrow Type” to some value[Eg. 4-Filled Sharp Arrow/10-Filled Dot], it doesn’t get affected on the rectangle(basic shape).
Can anyone explain on what basis this feature is ignored while displaying.

    Hi @M H Dileep Kumar

    As I understand it, "Begin Arrow type" feature are applied to connectors.
