Re: Right angle lines (again...)

When ever I use a lot of a particular adaptation of a "Dia primitive" I will do cuts and pastes to get more of them.  For more involved groups that I wish to reuse I have a couple of other diagrams I drop them in to copy from.  Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V works, so it it is easy.  I never found the shape creation very intuitive or well documented (in older versions) so this is my workaround.

Nope...and that seemed to do precisely what I wanted!!!!! Hooray. Will make my life better. Thanks again!
