Changing the holding pattern line to a straight line

The Straight Holding Pattern tool allows you to change the holding pattern line depiction in a profile view from the existing depiction to a straight line. Changing the holding pattern portrayal indicates when or where in the holding pattern it is safe to change altitudes and/or descend. The straight line depiction is the default holding pattern depiction in the profile view.
