Technical Instructions:

  • If you need to draw a straight line: Click Insert, Shapes, select the straight downward sloping line. At this point, the cursor should change to a + sign. Position the plus sign over the point where you want to start the line, click and hold the left mouse button, then drag the line to the point where you want the line to end. Release the mouse. Then you can move the line around by clicking on the line and adjusting it in various ways.
  • If you need to draw a curved line:  Click Insert, Shapes, select the shape called “arc.” At this point, the cursor should change to a + sign. Position the plus sign over the point where you want to start the curved line, click and hold the left mouse button, then drag the line to the point where you want the line to end. Release the mouse. Then you can move the line around by clicking on the line and adjusting it in various ways. Clicking on the green handle at the top of the curve allows you to rotate the curve.
  • If you need to draw a label of any kind: Click Insert, Text Box, Simple Text Box. You can then type inside the box, and move it around by clicking on the handles on the perimeter of the box.
  • If you need to color a line or curve: Right click on the line, select Format Auto Shape, Color. You can also change the line to a dotted line from this screen as well.

            If you are using Open Office or some other word processor, the steps will be quite similar, but not exactly the same. In any case, do some experimenting and get some help if necessary; and you will do fine. This is not an art class, and I don’t expect perfection in these matters.
