Drawing a Line

​​​​​​Line mode in the Draw widget can be ​​used to draw a line on the map as ​​follows:
  1. Open the Draw widget and click the Line mode button.
  2. ​The available options for drawing a line will appear at the bottom of the widget.​​​
  3. Select a preset line from the available choices or customize the Color, Style, Transparency and Width​.
  4. If desired, click Show Measurements to display the length of the line after it is drawn on the map.
  5. Click and hold the mouse button on the line's desired starting point on the map.
  6. Move the mouse towards the line's ending point. The line will be drawn between the starting point and the current mouse location. Hint: pressing the CTRL key while drawing the line will make it "snap" every few degrees. This feature is useful for drawing vertical or horizontal lines.
  7. Release the mouse at the ending point to finish the line.
  8. Repeat steps 1-7 to draw additional lines on the map.​
  9. To clear the ​lines from the map, click the Clear link, close the Draw widget or open a different widget.
