Thank you so much! Looks great and exactly like I wanted. :-)

Thank you for your observations. I won't pretend to have much knowledge about drawing apps and therefore won't pretend I have standing to complain. But basics are basics and new users should be able at least to draw a simple line.

I tinkered some more with libreoffice draw, but still can't draw a line with rounded ends. I drew a rectangle with round edges. Looked nice until I realized libreoffice draw had changed the borders from "dashed" to solid/full all around the image. Not sure what is up with that. Yet as a basic drawing app, I think I can learn and adapt to libreoffice draw. Too bad karbon can't do the basics.
