enter image description here

I have tried:

\draw [dashed] (1,1) -- (4,5)node[anchor=north west] {Line};

Thank you.

    Add midway (which is the same as pos=0.5) to the node options, or place it immediately after --. – Torbjørn T. Jun 17 '17 at 12:14

enter image description here


\draw [dashed] (0,1) -- node[left] {Line} (3,5);
\draw [dashed] (1,1) -- node[above,sloped] {Line} (4,5);
\draw [dashed] (3,1) to ["Line"] (6,5);       % use library quotes
\draw [dashed] (4,1) to ["Line",sloped] (7,5);% use library quotes
