This tool gives you the slope of a line and shows a slope triangle in the Graphics View, whose size may be changed using Properties Dialog (see also Slope command).

Position of the slope triangle[edit]

For a line defined by points A and B (in this order) using Mode join.svg 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 Mode join.svg 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 Mode slope.svgSlope Tool on the newly created line
3 hide point D
4 move C to adjust position of the slope triangle
