Does anyone have an idea how we can show flow arrows on our roadway ditches in Open Roads?
We use a custom linestyle for our flowline. I suppose it depends on what you want to see.

Thanks Mary. In InRoads we displayed the roadway ditches as lines from our proposed DTM and then used the annotate command to place arrows on the verticies. This allowed us to automatically orient the arrows in the direction the water would flow based on the slope of the line. In Open Roads were you able to automate the display of the custom linestyle you created so that the arrows would orient correctly? We haven't figured out a way to accomplish this in Open Roads.
In the Feature Symbology for the ditch, select an Annotation Group in the "3D" group...
In the Annotation Group, define a Plan>Linear3d annotation that places a cell at the points. In the Placement>Rotation Option field, you have the option to orient the cell in Positive Slope or Negative Slope direction.
After the Annotation group is set up, you run the Model Annotation or Element Annotation commands in the 3D model:
