Chapter 12. Lines > Drawing lines

Drawing lines

Need more than one of an item?

  • Use the Duplicate shortcut (Cmd-D/Ctrl-D). Or if you want to control where the duplicates land, use Item > Step & Repeat.

  • After you draw a line with a line tool, the tool automatically deselects. To keep a line tool selected so as to draw multiple lines, Option-click/Alt-click the tool on the Tools palette. When you're finished using it, choose a different tool.


The line creation tools produce horizontal, vertical, and diagonal straight lines and arrows to which a variety of styles, endcaps, and colors can be applied. Using the Dashes & Stripes command, which is covered in this chapter, you can create custom line styles for use with the line tools, the Frame command, or the paragraph Rules command.
