In my Powerpoint 2010, the line object appears as an arrow. I think this was software glitch. Any fixes?

Can you post a picture of your problem? As it is we can't even begin to imagine what the problem actually is. – Doktoro Reichard Sep 3 '13 at 21:30
Are you sure you don't have the arrow object selected rather than the plain line object? – Josh Sep 3 '13 at 21:32
  1. Right-click on the Line object - Then properties.
  2. Choose the Line Style option, if it hasn't already been selected on the dialog that appears.
  3. On the Begin Type and End Type drop-down menus check if an arrow head has been selected.

You should not have to go through the above steps if you're simply creating a line object, but something might be causing PowerPoint to do this.
