Showing Control Flow as Dashed Line in Activity Diagrams
« on: April 27, 2020, 07:31:31 am »
Hi All,

For activity diagrams, it seems to be common to use dashed lines for control flow and solid lines for object flow.  This is what I pick up on from a number of SysML books and online training.

However, in EA, when I add a control flow on an activity diagram, it has a solid line (same as an object flow). 

Is there a way to change this to a dashed line?  I've gone through all the context menus and can't find anything. 

Is there a way to make dashed line the default in EA? 

I'm using EA 15.1 build 1528.

Thanks.

Eve

Configure > Model > Options > General > Dashed line for Control Flow

The SysML specification itself refers to that as a notation option.

Following up on an older thread, but just wanted to say thanks, Eve.  That's what I needed and couldn't find.
