Line Script
I use the Path Tool for arrows, is there a script for “Lines” I can down load?

RE: Line Script
there is a "somewhat" good shape plugin built in Gimp where you can make the ">" triangle part
and the rectangle [___]

As long as you pick a brush with a soft edge (11 x 11) & turn on antialiasing it doesn't look too bad.

Filters > Render > Gfig

In the gfig window:
Go to "Edit > Preferences"
- Check on "antialiasing"
Then on the main gfig window
Find & click the "create reg polygon" looks like |><> next to the star.

If you hover your mouse over the tools they should tell you more about what it does(moving, deleting, etc.)

Tool options:
Sides: 3
[v]Stroke (check on)
Click browse under the colorbox to pick the brush (you can change the brush after you draw the shape to preview the results live)

For the stem:
You could draw your stem first, then draw the triangle part on top.
-Click the [_] icon on the gfig toolbar "create rectangle"

PLUGIN - ArrowsCreator.py
I have this one. Start with selecting Paths tools.
Click plugin. Select 2 anchor points. Easy.
You can slide one of the anchors to change the direction or length of the arrow.

Not tried this script-fu.
Draw arrow

I use the path tools to draw arrows, it required the arrow.scm " It was my understanding that is a script.

I want to use the path tool to draw a straight line.

You need to 'stroke the path'
Edit menu -> Stroke path. That brings up a dialog where you can set the line width or other options.
It uses the foreground colour, so set this first.

Thanks, don't need an arrow. The script "arrow.scm"I have for that works great. I needed just a line.
