Hello ThettRO Media,

I don't think that there is a line-tool like there are shape-tools, but you can simply use the Pen Tool to make a line. If the line should be straight (0, 45 or 90°) click, then hold Shift, move (yellow forcast-line apears) and click again.

If you click a third time it continues the line, if that's not what you want, just press ESC after you are done with your line. Like this if you click again you start a new line, not connected to the one you just did.

Hope that helps!

Or use the line mode as highlighted in a screengrab of @hannah's picture.

I'm fairly new to Affinity products, but I was wondering... is there a line tool? Something to just make straight lines? Perhaps I'm just missing something.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
