"Polyline Pattern" Property

Post by andrew » Tue Aug 18, 2015 9:09 am

By default, the line type pattern is applied to each segment of a polyline individually (left).
Especially for polylines with many small segments this can result in solid polylines for any pattern.

If Polyline Pattern is set to true, the line type pattern is created over the polyline as a whole (right).
