There are two settings for arrow switches, one when creating next round, and one when closing preparations in the beginning of the contest. This page describes the former while Close preparations describes the latter.
Arrow switching even tables in odd rounds may seem peculiar but it serves a purpose when double meetings are not allowed.
Often a few top pairs “run away” in the ranking. Once these pairs have met the first ranked is at table 1, the second at table 2 and the third at table 3 and that can stay so for several rounds. To ensure that these pairs do not always compare with each other you can arrow switch the even tables in every other round.
