Drawing Lines

To draw a straight line, you can use the Pencil tool or the Line tool. The Pencil tool responds to the direction of the mouse. If you drag in a curving motion, Visio draws an arc. If you drag in a straight line, Visio draws a line segment. (See Figure 22-9.) If you’re like a lot of people, you try to drag in a straight line and end up with an arc anyway. Fortunately, you can convert arcs to lines and vice versa—or you can use the Line tool, which always creates a straight line.

Figure 22-9. As you drag with the Pencil tool, the pointer provides useful feedback by changing to show whether you’re creating an arc or a line.
