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.

what do you mean with Line Tool?
Straight lines are generated by while pressed the SHIFT key.
An excerpt from the help.  ( Click F1 );)

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.
