I found a way to insert lines and arrows in FM in such a way that they 
move with the text flow, thereby staying where they belong. Insert an 
anchored frame and select Outside Column for the location. You can then 
drag the frame horizontally wherever you want, and move it vertically by 
dragging the resize handles. With this method, the anchored frame stays 
in the same relative location to the point of insertion. And any drawing 
lines that you drag into the anchored frame move together with the 
anchored frame.
