|1.||||Select the Line tool and create an arbitrary line AB by clicking twice in the Graphics View.|
|2.||||Create a line BC using the Line tool again. Hint: Select point B and then click in the Graphics View to create point C.|
|3.||||Activate the Parallel Line tool and create a parallel line to line AB through point C. Hint: Open the Toolbox of Special Lines, activate the Parallel Line tool and select the line AB and then point C.|
|4.||||Create a parallel line to line BC through point A using the Parallel Line tool again.|
|5.||||Select the Intersect tool and create the intersection point D of the two lines. Hint: Open the Toolbox of Points, activate the Intersect tool and click directly on the intersection point.|
|6.||||Activate the Polygon tool and create the parallelogram ABCD by successively selecting all the vertices. Note: To close your polygon, select the first point again.|
|7.||||Select the Move tool and drag the vertices of the parallelogram to check if it was constructed correctly.|
