So I'm trying something pretty simple, that is to have arrows around a circle, like the blue arrows in the following image

enter image description here

At the minute, I have a circle, with a stroke, in the stroke flyout menu I have this:

enter image description here

Which is ok, I just duplicate the circle, rotate it into position (I don't know how to add multiple arrow heads to a stroke.

Is there a better more flexible way that I should be doing this?

Thanks in advance.

You'll need to work with multiple strokes instead of one. I don't know of any way to add a number of arrow heads to one stroke unless its done manually.

My idea is to make 5 circles with a stroke no fill. Cut them up in quadrants, so they're as long as you want your arrows. Trim off the access circle, add arrow heads to the front or end. Rotate them so they don't overlap. I just did something similar enter image description here

Hope I could help!
