Designing Reports - make it easier to draw a horizontal line
When designing reports and you select the horizontal line tool it is very hard to draw a long straight line. You end with with a jagged line or the report and orange lines on the screen. It is very time consuming to get it just right - you need to have the skills of a brain surgeon.
Could you please make it a quick - one drag feature.
Left over from an issue with lines many years ago ( I vaguely recall there was a memory leak?), I learned to use rectangles instead. I still use rectangles unless the line needs to be at an angle.

This feature exists! Simply:
* Click the Line button
* Hold down Shift
* Click on the Form/Report
* Drag and release
This works for vertical lines too.

After you've drawn the line, if it's not horizontal, just set its Height to zero in the Properties box.
Bingo; horizontal line.
