Coconut the distance/duration are drawn automatically with that line type.  All of those "shapes" were actually drawn as squares all of the same size.  Zone types and some position types smooth edges automatically.  The attack arrow is also misshapen only because it was drawn as box.  

 

This is an extremely useful image!!!

Thanks to 

Kokakolo

 

I've set it as my background before, when editing

 

 

 

 

 

This also may be of some guidance, it's just not as easy to reference.

Very interesting picture Kokakolo.
I have another question to ask about attack line types to draw the direction of an attack.
The manual explains how to position the icons to create an arrow, but despite the fact that I move the angle and the distance between the last two icons (the ones that form the hook ...) the shape of the arrow's tail is always very wide .
How can you create an arrow with a narrower tail?

I attach the test file which produces on the GUI a very large arrow's tail.

Thank.

You have to place the last two icons quite close together to keep the tail narrow. Try placing the tail icons about 3 or 4 icon-widths apart. You could also increase the distance between the two icons at the arrow head to balance the entire arrow shape.

Thank you Jim.
I want to ask you if you can edit my test.rar file (attached to my post), so I can better understand which must be the sample...
Thank...

No.... Jim must work on the update to the editor manual only.

Thanks Jim, it's just what I needed, because this saves me the time to continue with a series of tests ... the difference between the various shapes, in fact, as I see, is very small and you need to experiment to find the right one.
Thank you, as always you have been kind and precious, with your great experience ...
