I'm doing some small spot technical illustrations in photoshop and  
want to add some of those lines that show scale - you know, the ones  
with a short horizontal line traveling away from the scale line, at  
top and bottom. Is there an easy, reproducible way to do this in  
photoshop besides making the lines manually in layers, and grouping  
them together? That seems kind of tedious, especially since I have  
over 50 of these to do in just a couple of weeks, overtime. It would  
be nice if there's a utility to accomplish this, along the lines of  
those nice little arrows that are part of the palette. ; ) Any  
suggestions as to how to streamline this are most welcome. I'm  
working right now in CS2 but am planning to install CS4 this week, if  
that's a better fit.
