## Position of the slope triangle

For a line defined by points *A* and *B* (in this order) using Line Tool or Line Command, the slope triangle is placed to point *A*. For line *l* defined using input line (entered as equation, e.g. `l:x+2y=3`

), the triangle is placed at the y-intercept (point on *l* with zero x-coordinate).
If you want to place the triangle elsewhere, you can follow these instructions.

1 select Line Tool, click the line *l* in two points to create points *C* and *D*; new line will be created at the same time

2 use *Slope Tool* on the newly created line

3 hide point *D*

4 move *C* to adjust position of the slope triangle
