Favorites of any of the four Line-type tools (Line, Arc, Polyline, Spline) can be applied to any of the other Line-type elements.

Click the color for a Pencolor selection palette for the Line/Arc/Polyline/Spline.
Check the Zone Boundary box to allow lines to delimit Zones when using the automatic recognition methods of the Zone tool.
Use the Arrowhead icons to choose a Line with no arrowheads, or a Line with an arrowhead at start, at end or at both ends.
Click the Arrowhead pop-up icon for selection of marker types.
The Line Categories and Properties panel is identical for the Line, Arc/Circle, Polyline and Spline tools.
