You are right. I had looked at the "Line Styles" tab, not at the "Arrow Styles"
tab.

> But what is Add good for?

Draw a closed shape, but not a custom shape. Keep it selected and open the Line
dialog on "Arrow Styles" tab. Now the Add button is enabled. Click it and enter
a name. Close dialog. Draw a line and open the line arrow drop-down list. Find
your new marker at the bottom of the list.
Adding a dash style or an "arrow" will copy the common current set from share
to the user directory and add the new item there.

 I don't have
> any option and always get a straight line.

My proposal would be, to divide the dialog in two parts. One part for applying
settings to a selected line (in menu Format) and a second part for defining
dash styles, marker styles and managing their sets (in menu Tools). I have no
strong opinion whether selecting a set would be better in the part in menu
Format (similar to the selecting drop-down for colors in the Area dialog) or in
menu Tools.
