How can I extend or decrease the length of a connected graphic line in the Schematic Editor of KiCad 6?

Below is in blue ovals the pictogram and two examples marked.

I can remember I could change the length of the lines with the 'g' hotkey, but in KiCad 6 this does not seem to work anymore (it moves it instead).

Is there any how to prevent removing/redrawing the lines every time I want to change them?
