I've been creating a diagram on folic acid metabolic pathways in mammals and I have two lines I've grouped together, that I'd like to give end markers to but for some reason only one of these two lines has an end marker. I've tried adding a start marker (as I was wondering if Inkscape was counting the other line as the start of the overall path) and a centre marker (out of desperation), neither worked.

The problem

    How have you grouped the lines? With a group or with a combine or with an union? Are the paths connected? Can you provide the source? Dec 13, 2014 at 22:32
