I'm a baal teshuva who recently began reciting daily prayers. I own several Koren siddurim and I notice in all of them, occasional small arrows pointing at the text. Does anyone know what these arrows indicate? I know downward pointing arrows indicate when we're supposed to bow, but I'm not sure about the ones pointing inward at the text.

Shaliach Tzibbur" means the one leading the communal service.
