Line styles: dashed, dotted

#1 Post by bruhnstv » 17 Feb 2012, 15:25

In my schematics, I often want to put an indication of "shield rooms" around certain areas. I can do that with annotation lines, polylines or rectangles, and in the schematic editor, it's clear that the lines are not schematic connections. I can make the lines whatever color I want, and that helps further. However, often I want to print the schematics in black-on-white, and then it is not so obvious that the lines are not schematic connections. It would be helpful to have other line styles; "dashed" lines are commonly used on schematics to show shielding, so that would be my first choice for an additional line style. I can also imagine wanting dotted lines, but that's not as important.

Thanks for your consideration.

Cheers,
Tom

I agree, this would be a nice feature.

I also think this is a much needed feature and is possible in all other packages I've used. Juts need a dotted line style.

These posts are at least four years old now. However, this feature is still sorely needed.

As a bonus, this is probably not difficult to implement.

How about it, DipTrace? Can we have this soon, please!
