Yeah we can highlight squares and Draw arrows in live game also while doing analysis. But changing the colour of the analysis arrow is only available in analysis mode.

I understand that you want to draw arrows in your game. I also saw a few streamers drawing arrows on their board and it looked awesome!

It looked like this:

You can do this on any board automatically, except in Live chess. To enable this option in Live chess, click on the gear icon next to the board:

Then toggle the switch to draw arrows and highlights. Don't forget to click save!

To draw an arrow simply right-click and drag your mouse across the board in the direction you want the arrow to point. Please see here for how to right-click on a Mac if you don't have a two button mouse!

To draw a knight's move arrow, click and drag over the squares you want the arrow to cover. When you let go of the right mouse button the arrow will appear. The point of the arrow will be wherever you let go of your mouse button.

Try it on any board on Chess.com to practice!

You can also highlight squares in red or green color:

Right Click on the square to turn it red.

Control Right Click on the square to turn it green.

To clear all arrows and colors from the board, simply left-click anywhere on the board.

Awesome, right?

Edit:

For different color arrows, try holding Shift or Ctrl or Alt while drawing it.

Did chess.com remove the option to draw colored arrows on here?  I used to be able to, but haven't been able to draw colored arrows for a few months now.  Anyone else having the same problem?  (I can't do it in analysis mode or any other mode)
