In the figure window my arrows look beautiful (see top panel of attached image), but when I export to EPS the arrows become horrendously ugly (see bottom panel of image). How do I fix this?

I used to use the ARROW.m package from the FEX, but it was very bug-infested (I'd run a figure-generating script once, and the arrow would look beautiful, then I'd run it again with no changes made and it would come out extremely small and ugly). Also I've read that it doesn't work well in 2014b, which is the only version I have available.

There are dozens of other submissions for drawing arrows. Did you try them?

Dear Jan, Could you please delete this as an "answer", since it is not an ANSWER to the question? It is more of a comment. But ASKING me if I've tried other submissions is not an answer. You also suggest that there are dozens of submissions for making arrows, but not suggested one that works, so the question is still unanswered. Also, I could not even find ONE dozen results when searching for "arrow" or "arrows".

I'm worried that this question might HAVE an answer, but the question is not getting enough attention because it looks like it has been answered.

@Nike: I hesitate to delete the "answer", because the discussion in the comments is useful. But I'm going to push the question from time to time.

I cannot check the different FEX submissions for you, because I do not have your Matlab version 2014b. Having some example code to reproduce the problem would be a benefit also.
