Reduce rectangle in layout to appear as simple horiztonal line

Using ACT Pro12 v14.1.108, I want to draw a simple horizontal line in the layout. Many lines already exist in the current layout with the border style being 3D. I can move and copy/paste the lines, but I can't make them longer or create one from scratch to look like the existing (see graphic below).

 

When I try to change the line length I only get handles that turn the line into a rectangle that snaps to the grid. When I change the border style to Single, nothing changes. I uncheck all three grid attributes but they don't change.

 

In earlier versions, we could draw any line. We could also increase the density of the grid to allow for this. Is there any workaround to insert a simple horizontal line?  I appreciate any and all insight...

Within the layout designer, open the properties dab. There you will see the properties of the box if you click on it. Change the height to 1 and that should make a straight line.
