How can I add diagonal lines like this?

Using Word 2010, how can I add diagonal lines to mark the correct timing for chords in a chord sheet, as shown in the chord markings in this image?


Also: What's the easiest method of adding vertical lines as shown in the left side of the image?

Only thing I can think of is the equation editor but it would still be a lot of work, you would be better off looking for an opensource editor for chord sheet creation as it's a specialist task which is more of a pasteboard system than conventional word processing


OpenSong may be worth a look for ideas, I think it's a linux app but may have a windows equivalent

Others are available ... https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ch...=1920&bih=1012

Or any graphics program would do it. I would use Photoshop and the vertical lines and diagonal lines would be on their own layers. But more basic picture editing or graphics apps can be used.

I use LibreOffice to perform such graphics. The trick is to zoom in 200% first, create the desired diagonal, colour it, and then Copy the result to the clipboard so you can use the same shape diagonal again and again.
