Hi Miakel,

Once the message is created, you cannot change its direction. So when you will have to specify the direction as you create a message.

(1) Choose Message in the tool bar (2) Click on the diagram (3) When you move a mouse, a red arrow appears. Do the second click when the arrow is pointing to the direction you want

Here's the short clip showing this step

Hope it helps.
