Using Open Office Draw with Windows 10
Is there a way to continue creating lines in a drawing without having to select LINE for each new line?

The Free-form Line, or the Poligon or the Poligon(45°) function is not appropriate for you?

Double click the line tool. Draw lines. Press ESC to release the tool.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.

Another approach: make a new line, then copy that line (one step: click+Ctrl+drag, or middle mouse [Linux only]) then move the copied line and/or endpoints into position.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Draw Guide. When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

If your problem is solved please view your first post in this thread and click the Edit button (top right in the post) and add [Solved] in front of the subject.
