Line format
« on: April 06, 2010, 05:18 PM »
When I draw a box around a group of process units I would like to be able to format it as dashes '-----' instead of a solid line.
I'm currently using the rectangle & line features to create the box.

Dear helenh,

i am not sure if i really got, what you would like to do. If you would like to draw a hollow box with a dashed border, you can draw a rectangle and change some properties in the properties window (in e!Sankey initial configuration it is shown at the left side of the main window):
1. Set 'Fill Style Color' to transparent. It is a predefined color on tab 'Named Colors'.
2. Switch off 'Linear Gradient'
3. Check option 'Border Style Draw Border'.
4. Change Border color and style by clicking on the color palette symbol. Select the color and set 'Line Style' (near bottom of dialog).

If you would like to draw more than one of these boxes, you can select the box, open the context menu and click on 'use as default'. Boxes you draw after that will have this appearance.

If this is not what you would like to do, please let me know.

Best regards,
