I am trying to draw a line in 10/30 skip line style. When I select the tool and start drawing the line it shows up correctly and after I place the line and accept it the line turns into a solid line. could you please tell me how can I fix this situation?
Are you drawing this using D&C Manager?

Actually I tried both. Drawing it through the D&C Manager (by selecting the element and D&C manager automatically converting it into 10/30 skip) and the problem with that was the 10/30 skip line is not coming in a single line, instead each dash line is a separate line.
That is why I wanted to draw it in using the line command. I went to Element>Line Style and selected the line style that I want but after I draw in the line it just shows up as a solid line.
It is my understanding that this is the correct way to do it. When drawing with D&C manager, the dashed lines of the skip stripe are individual lines. This allows for accurate quantities to be calculated for the skip stripe rather than calculating the entire length.
Awesome. I was thinking that it should be a single complex chain. that is why I was confused. Thank You.
One more question.
Do I have to create a new run to draw in all my pavement markings using D&C manager, so that it can register all my pavement markings to compute the quantities later? Or Do I just have to place them using D&C manager and it will compute all the lines which were drawn using D&C manager?
I believe that you can just create all of your pavement markings and calculate quantities later. Kandi Daffin at the CADD Office is our quantities expert if you need support for that portion of the process.
