    Having 'out-of-box' options would be ideal instead of using work-arounds by using calculated columns and the 'Lines & Curves' feature that does allow color, line type, and line width and transparency.

    Use of line weight/thickness is used to visualize data across several of our analyses (especially ones that we're required to generate a summary report version to send out by PDF to execs). This and the awful PDF functionality - something that seems to have been immensely improved with 7.10 - was one of two roadblocks we had to getting rid of our side Tableau operation. One down...now just 'line style by' to go!

    I agree to Dave that it would be great to have a "Linestyle by" option to have more differentiation options in the line charts.

    it should also be possible to define the line styles via (document) properties

    The functionality for dotted and dashed lines is only available in the "Lines and Curves" section, but not for the default lines.  This would be very valuable for me.

    We could definitely make good use of this feature.  I would also suggest including ability to choose marker style including not using any marker at all

    Would also want to be able to set style by data element (LINE BY)

Linetype by column value

Merged
In the line type, I would like to have the option of varying the linetype (dashed, semi-dash, dotted) etc, and having this controlled by categorical column values.

“Dash by” in line graphs

Merged
Line graphs are great for a lot of our data as we look at measurement curves like IV characteristics. However basically only having “color by” available to differentiate measurement curves is limited. It would be great if a line style (dotted, das...

Dotted and dashed default lines

Merged
In Spotfire, I don't see an option to create dotted and dashed default lines. This is a useful option in Excel as another differentiator than just color.

In excel charts, you plot several columns on the Y axis and then specify the line style, marker style that you desire, and the style can be completely different for each columns. For example, choose one line to be dotted and another only showing m...
