The line annotation object is a simple line. In design mode, the line is started on a mouse-down event and completed on a mouse-up event. Holding down the Shift key while drawing the line will draw the line at an angle that is a multiple of 45 degrees.
In design mode, click on the object with the right mouse button to do the following:
Undo the last user action.
Cut or copy the object to the clipboard.
Delete the object.
Bring the object to the front or send it to the back.

Only the Menu Item "Hyperlink" and an associated event are provided through the automation object. For more information, refer to Implementing Annotation Hyperlinks.
Note: You can not create a line of two points which they are the same.
