Can't Draw a Line in Layout

I cannot figure out how to draw a simple line in the layout designer in order to separate a set of fields. Seems like this should be a simple thing. If I try to modify the length of one of the lines that were there by default (ones separating the different fields) by draging one of the corners, they turn into turn into a filled rectangle. Any help much appreciated.

Re: Can't Draw a Line in Layout

Hello,

There is not an option to draw a single line. You would have to draw a rectangle with a Height of 1 (this is the lowest). After drawing the rectangle, press F4 on your keyboard to bring up the Properties box. Select the rectangle and then you can manually adjust the height, position, fill, etc.
