Two improvements on previous release:
* Ability to hide user interface indefinitely. Preferences are stored in a text file titled ”drawarrowprefs.txt”. To make the interface reappear, delete the ”drawarrowprefs.txt” file.
* Ability to change the format of the decimal place from period (.) to comma (,)

The jsxbn file gets downloaded to your local Downloads folder on C drive.

Once the file has been downloaded, launch Adobe InDesign and open the scripts palette (found under the Window menu, then Utilities, then Scripts).
Once the Scripts Palette is open, right-click (or control-click) the User folder and select the prompt Reveal in Finder (Mac OS) or Reveal in Explorer (Windows). This will open the User folder either in Finder or Windows Explorer.
From here, drag and drop the downloaded script from your Downloads folder into the User folder.
Return to Adobe InDesign and unfold the User folder in the Scripts Palette.
The script has now been installed into this folder.
