Creating and inserting an arrowhead

I need to use an arrowhead to point to specific areas of a clip. How do I create such a pointer and import into the clip? Do I create it in another tool, such as Corel Draw? Can I use an arrow symbol in MS Word? If so , do I save it as a file and import? What kind of file
extension should I use that can be imported for this?

You can create it in another program and bring it into Vegas but I think the easiest way is to use the text generated media and use an arrow (of which there are many) in one of the Wing Ding fonts.

Terry,

That worked. I found arrows in Wingdings3 that were perfect. Thanks for you help!
