A line graphic is a single line segment with other graphic attributes. The figure below shows examples of lines.

Standard Operations

To create a line bring forward the Graphic Selector, select the line factory cell and then mouse down on a Graphic View and drag the cursor to another point. The initial and final cursor locations define the end points of the line segment. Premade lines can also be dragged out from the line Factory Inspector.

For more information see Standard Editing.

Spatial Metrics controls are in reference to the reference bounds of the line. A width of zero means a vertical line and a height of zero means a horizontal line. Contrast this to the stroke width which defines the width of the line segment.
