    Dash border on rectangle showing as solid line, why do dashes only work for line paths?

    alanwf

      Hello,

       

      I have Fireworks CS5 and am trying to render a rectangle with dashed border (like the kind you'll see around newspaper coupons).

       

      I normally use "Edit Stroke > Options > Dash" to set a line with the exact "On/Off" ratio that I need, but for some reason this seems to only work with line paths, but not with rectangles.

       

      I'ver also tried the built-in "Dashed > Basic Dash" Line style, but the dashes are blurry for anything bigger than 3 px (and one cannot customize the gaps).

       

      My version of Fireworks CS5 is ver 11.0.0484 on Mac OSx 10.6.5. Are other users also experiencing this? If so, does anybody know of a workaround?

       

      Any assistance will be appreciated.

       

      Thanks,
