I am new to illustrator. Below is a screenshot of an arrow I am trying to make using illustrator. I need help in the following: How can I make the lower part (curved part) of the arrow thicker/wider? How can I save the image for mobile usage (within an app) in .png format?

    Expand it and then manually adjust your curves – Ryan Nov 25 '14 at 17:48

  • @Scott: increasing the stroke width also increases the size of the arrowhead – ItsMeAgain Nov 25 '14 at 18:44

To increase the stroke width, simply increase the weight in the Stroke Panel. If you want to adjust your arrowhead afterwards, simply alter the percentage used for the arrowhead on the Stroke Panel as well.

  • File > Save for Web and choose PNG. – Scott Nov 25 '14 at 20:45
