How can I draw a simple line, not connected to something, in the web application draw.io?


Open the "Connection" section on the left hand side

The connectors library in draw.io

And drag and drop one into the main canvas

You can follow the steps described by @david. enter image description here And additionally, you can add that simple line as default from the context menu, after that when you will make new connections it will be done with the simple line. enter image description here


I use a horizontal or vertical line. They are not connected to other objects, and they can be rotated if you want to draw slanted lines.
