Summary0002428: Path - Add direction arrows to Path command visualization.
DescriptionMost modern CAM software will display the path backplot to visualize the tool movement relative to the model. This will include a visual cue to the direction of travel ie depicting a line with an embedded arrow head (---->-----). With FreeCAD's current implementation in Path, it isn't possible to determine the direction of travel by looking at the path.

It would be best to allow a preference setting to toggle arrows on and off since they might be ineffective or distracting in very dense backplots.
