|Effects: Stroke - Dash (page 1)|
||To make a stroke effect into a dashed stroke, choose the stroke effect and click on the Dash button to bring up the Line Dash Editor.|
• You can select one of the premade dash patterns or create your own.
To create your own dash pattern, enter a series of numbers into the Line-skip field.
The first number is the length of the first dash.
The second number is the length of the first gap, etc.
• To have dashes and gaps of equal lengths, enter a single number.
• To have dashes of one length and gaps of another, enter two numbers.
• For longer patterns, enter more numbers.
To make the dash pattern start somewhere other than the beginning, enter a value into the Initial Skip field. For example, if you have a dash of 10 and a gap of 10, and you enter 10 into the Initial skip field, the dash pattern will skip the first dash and start at the first gap.
