How do you draw a straight line?
Simple question. I couldn't work out how to do this before, so I decided to draw a long box, 2 pixels wide and fill it with the desired colour. That was all fair and well until I tried reducing my image and then the nice looking spider web line that I drew turned into a horrible black and white block line that looks crap.

So, I decided to try and get rid of it, and here I am 45 minutes later still trying to get rid of it. I don't what layer it is on, there are many layers, whenever i find the layer it is and delete it it then turns up in another layer in a different colour. I've tried copying and pasting over layers, it just keeps coming back, I don't know what is going on anymore, it wont go away....

I don't know if it's a bug or I just can't find it. Either way it's doing my head in, I'm tired and I want to have a cup of tea and a game of online backgammon and then go to bed, but this problem is preventing me from doing all of those things.

Arrrrgh.

So yeah, while I continue trying to get to the bottom of this does anyone know how to draw a simple freaking straight line in GIMP by clicking on a point and then clicking on another point? Simples.

EDIT- sorry for the rant, I got the root of the problem finally. But still, how do you draw a straight line LOLZ
