Possibility to set control flow lines dashed (#271)

I've run into an issue where it is necessary to understand which flows contains objects and which contains control tokens. But since it is not possible to make control flows dashed (as described in sysML 1.3), I now have to resort to colour and line thickness.

You can adjust the default style this way: click on menu Project / Style Set / Edit

Click on button with green plus to add new style, choose 'For specific element', from 'Element type' combo box choose Control flow (or Object flow) and confirm the dialog with OK button.

Then set Line style (Border group) to Dash. Click on OK.

Ok, I tried your suggestion, however is the dash spacing too small, making it very difficult to see the difference between a dashed and solid line on a printout. The space needs to be larger, more close to the dash for comment connectors.

I will improve rendering of dashed lines soon.
