Hi, I recently upgraded my photoshop creative cloud to version 21.0.2. After the upgrade I can't find where the arrow tool is to draw an arrow. Can someone tell me where to find the arrow tool?
Coming along, Trevor. Details in PM.
You left something out. On my machine, I had to click the "stacked lines" icon on top right of Window > Shapes search box. THEN I was finally able to access the arrows inside Legacy Shapes.
WHY would ANYONE ANYWHERE think that experienced PS users should have instant access to the BAOBOB TREE custom shape tool while having to walk through fire to draw an ARROW?
"The answer is still good. Go to Window > Shapes to bring up the Shapes Panel. In the Search box, type "arrows" and it will bring up the folder with the arrows in it. Select the Arrow folder and clear the search box to display the arrows as shown. You'll need to select the Custom Shape Tool and select the arrow you want. "
I use the MacOS version and it works as described. Unfortunately I can't account for other configurations I don't own.
This is SO spot on:

Adobe for fs...Are you listening?
Thanks for this. Its been driving me crazy!
and for us not using windows? do agree with a lot of people here in the thread - this is a very poor solution from you guys in the Adobe team 😞
and how about that, can see that my name is default5douwspudvw5 🙂 🙂
I have been using PhotoShop to edit schematics and line drawings for years and have had absolutely no problems drawing lines with arrowheads on them until this recent upgrade. I've been reading all of the responses from the other frustrated users and have tried following the directions. When I get to the shapes panel, I typed in "arrows" and I see three folders (all opened) with nothing in them except empty folders. How the heck is one supposed to draw or choose an arrow from nothing? If it isn't broke, don't fix it!
Have you deleted "arrows" from the search box? You should then see the arrows.
