To draw a straight line
Posted 08 March 2007 - 01:10 AM
hold "alt," hold "shift," and press "prnt screen."
* Remember to let go of all keys, afterwards.
Go to "Settings."
Go the the "Mouse" tab.
Check "Use mouse keys."
Play with "settings" in the "Mouse" section if you wish to make adjustments.
Use the pencil tool.
Hold down the mouse button and start drawing with the number pad.
1) If you're using a mouse with ball, take out the ball and use the buttons for clicking.
2) Try using various combinations of the number pad; sometimes you don't need to use the mouse buttons.

When using the mouse, a person could throw off the x-y coordinates. However, by using the keys, the person decreases that chance. The keys go up and down the x-y coordinate, and they can also go zig-zag. But, the user is not required to use his or her eye-sight to make sure a line is exactly vertical or horizontal when using the number pad. But the user is required to do so when using the mouse.

I can't take out the ball from my mouse... because it doesn't have one. This step can't help those of use using an optical or laser mouse. :s:
