Changing the size of gaps in dashed/dotted ties

You can change the size of the gaps in dashed/dotted ties individually. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only, or for all layouts and frame chains.

Prerequisite

  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • Graphic Editing Graphic Editing button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.

Procedure

  1. In Engrave mode, select the individual dashed/dotted ties whose gap size you want to change.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Gap in the Ties group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.

Result

Increasing the value makes the gaps between dashes/dots larger. Decreasing the value makes the gaps between dashes/dots smaller. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
