Explanation


First zoom in to see that the line is actually text.


Zoom out and then click the text to see blue grips. Zoom out further if necessary to find 2 blue arrows close together which appear to the right of the text.


Zoom in with your mouse wheel to the 2 arrows until they appear separated.


Click on the bottom arrow which puts you into a stretch mode. (Don't hold your mouse key down)


Now move your mouse to click into the bottom right hand corner of the rectangle.
