Hello

Something that really bothers me in OneNote 2003 it seems to be restricted to only drawing freeform lines, when all i want is a simple line. Is there a keyboard shortcut or maybe some other way to draw straight lines?

One fairly easy workaround would be to create a line in Word or elsewhere, then copy/paste it into OneNote.  If you're going to use such things a lot you could keep a OneNote page with such shapes on it and just copy/paste to use them whenever. At least until (if) some drawing tools get added in a future version.

i guess its a possible solution but if I'm going to have to copy, paste and resize everytime I want a line, the whole concept of onenote (quick and easy notes) has pretty much been lost... Anyways, that link answered my question.

it seems reading from the comment of a onenote teammember this item is on the wishlist so it could be in there in a next version

thanks for the grade
