Thanks. That's been fixed for the next release.

You can click them to swap the arrows (inside/outside). This is an experimental feature of the snapshot release.

After posting, I looked at the property editor and found that feature, that worked within the editor but not with the mouse either :D

I cannot reproduce this here. Be sure to click the reference points (not drag them). If you cannot get it to work: what platform are you on?

Got it, it works.
I first tried to play with those circles like the the square handle! (I'm on Win7-64)

I run in the same problem like J-J but now I understood how it works. I'm on Win10/64.

Question: If I tricker the flip with the mouse it flips both arrows. Single arrow flip with the mouse isn't possible, correct?

Correct. Both arrows pointing the same way is almost never desirable but can be done using the property editor.
