    I'm sick and tired of using Microsoft Paint. Any ideas?

    I need to create a number line. It's sort of like a chronological time line sort of.

    The point is I need to compare number values and overlap of those values.

    is the number line the real line?

    as in the set R of real numbers?

    If so I'd say just use excel or some other spreadsheet. you'd be able to customize the jumps between notches and could just size all the columns evenly with a horizontal border

    Yeah, they're real numbers.

    But I wasn't able to find a way to do it on Excel. I can create all sorts of graphs and tables, but not number lines.

    Can you post a picture of what you're trying to do? It sounds like something that could be done in Excel, Mathematica, Matlab, or other such tools, but I can't say without understanding your goal.

    In Excel try clicking on Edit | Fill | Series.
    From there you can create trends and number lines.
