    It would be really nice if there was a way to add an arrow and not have to
    draw it by hand. Can I atleast copy a Arrow made in MS Word so I don't have
    a strangelooking hand drawn arrow in my document making it look like
    something a kindergardener drew?

    Yes, it's easy enough to copy & paste an arrow from Word etc.

    I for one take a different way:
    Not only for screen-clippings nt especially for annotating images for a
    very long time I have been using "SnagIt"[1] which comes with everything
    needed (tons of "stamps" [very many arrows]).

    Just try it out. There's a fully functional "trial".
