Drawing a zig-zag line. We sometimes need to draw a path of travel, which means we need to draw lines with many different angles in them. The polygon tool woud work EXCEPT that the "shape" would not be closed.

Thank you for your suggestion, we have something in Snagit for Mac where we continue to add points to a line so you can change the path. I made a quick Jing video:

Would this help or would you need something else?
Thanks for your feedback!

Here is a work-around I use -- not nearly as good as having a zigzag line tool:

1. Create a blank canvas
2. Add a border with a thickness of about 5
3. Add a Shark Edge with the same thickness
4. Use the Selection tool to select a section of the border that you want to use as a ZZ line
5. Copy to clipboard
6. Switch to your main image
7. Paste
8. Adjust length as desired.
