I have exported flow direction arrows from WaterCAD / WaterGEMS as a shapefile and imported that into ArcMap / ArcGIS Pro, however flow arrow directions that are generated using the exported shapefile do not match with flow arrow directions in the water model.
Before exporting the flow direction arrows shapefile from pipe flex table, make sure that the angle unit is set to degrees in the options. Starting with WaterGEMS/WaterCAD 10.03.04.XX release the default unit for angle in these shapefiles should be in degrees, so you won’t need to change it.
Once the shapefiles are imported into ArcMap, make the following changes to the symbology.
For ArcGIS Pro
Once the shapefiles are imported into ArcGIS Pro, make the following changes to the symbology.
The final results should look like this for comparison.

How can I enable the flow arrows when working in the ArcGIS Pro or ArcMap platform?
