Changing Line Styles for Objects

Change line styles when you want to change the type of line that connects objects in a hierarchical structure. You can, for example, select solid lines, dotted lines, and so on.

You must select a specific object, and Structural Graphics changes the line from the selected object to its parent object.

You can only change line styles when the Design setting in the View Options dialog box is set to manual. For details, see The View Options Dialog Box

To change line styles, proceed as follows.

  1. Click on the object whose line style you want to change.
  2. Click on the menu options Object ® Change line style.

    A drop-down menu appears listing the line styles you may select from.

  3. Click on the line style you want.

The system changes the line style of the object.
