I have a tool script attached to an Area2D and I'm trying to draw a line in the editor as a helper.

When I run the game I can see the line being drawn but in the editor it is not appearing.

Here's the code:

extends Area2D

func _ready():

func _physics_process(delta):

func _draw():
    draw_line(Vector2(), Vector2(20,50), Color(1,1,1), 3)

I tried both, process and physics_process.

Sorry if this was asked before, I couldn't find the answer.

Any idea?

I just tested your codes and works fine for me.
did you restart editor?

You can also try to close the scene and reopen it

You should restart editor once or close and reopen it (as @Zylann said in comment)
You can reload script by File > Soft reload script (Control + Shift + R) for the changes after that.
if it doesn't work well, I suggest to restart editor or reopen it again.
