How to turn on and off dashed lines associated with taps or customer meters

Version(s): CONNECT Edition
Area: Layout and Data Input


When a tap node is placed, a dashed line appears to show which link the tap is associated with.

Similarly, a customer meters element shows a dashed line to indicate the associated element.

How can these dotted / dashed lines be turned off?


In the CONNECT Edition, the Element Symbology properties includes a "Show Associated Link Decorations" (taps) or "Show Associated Element Decorations" (customer meters) field to control if this dashed line is displayed. By setting this to False the dashed line will not display.

This is found by double clicking on the "Tap" or "Customer meter" entry in the Element Symbology manager (typically docked on the left side, or accessed from View > Symbology) and then adjusting the field in the property grid.
