In addition to the horizontal lines, another kind of line can be inserted. The free lines or "Anyline". To do so just select the tool available on the left vertical toolbar.

When inserting the line, the object will show two points of different size.

The big point indicates the initial position of the line. The small point indicates the last point.

It is important to remmark that the first point indicates which section or subsection the object belongs to.

Moving and sizing the object

To move the object, it will be necessary to drag it from the big point.

It is required that the initial point is in a section or subsection. Additionally is important to consider that the object "anyline" will belong to the section or subsection where the starting point is.

The last point (the small one) can be freely moved and does not alter the position of the first point.

Properties X Plus and Y Plus

These two properties are exclusive for the object AnyLine and set the values "that must be added to X and Y to place the final point". These values relate to the starting point.

This means that when the object is moved from the starting point, the X plus and Y plus values are not altered.
