Create a Pretty, Stylized Bracket

I don't know about you, but I really dislike the rotated triangle as a pointer. I also don't like the way brackets come into documents from the Shapes menu – they always come in "boxy" and need adjustments. Here's a quick and easy way to make a very pretty bracket, and it's available on PowerFrameworks and is soooo easy to make.

Take a look at the image below. Can it be more easy or more pretty?

Remember that the box/bracket combos in AV033 flow left, right, up, and down. So you can use these in lots of ways. If you use the correct orientation (don't rotate them), then your text will be horizontally oriented when you click on the top box/bracket combo and start typing.

We've added a download for you so you can see how the finished box/bracket combo set works. Play around with the colors a bit to find what best suits your document style, etc. Enjoy using this technique when you need a flow.
