  • How to make only one side of a square a dotted line?

    How would one make only one side of a square a dotted line? Or a different color, or some other format change which would not affect the other three sides?
    Thanks!

    It may not matter, but someone always asks - what program?
    Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

      I'm not that familiar with CorelDraw but going to go out on a limb and say you can't. Effects will affect the whole line segment. You probably have to do a workaround that involves that one side being a separate line.

        Sorry--I started out on the CorelDraw X5 forum but didn't see a way to post a new thread. By the time I found a New Subject button, I guess I was elsewhere...:-)...

          Can you work with three sides on one layer and one side on another?

            I don't see how that would be any different from putting a dotted line over a solid line on the same layer--in both cases it would appear as a solid line....

              Why? the first layer would only have 3 sides.

              Is this what you're trying to do?

                Select the first rectangle, go to Object>Path>offset path. For an inside border use a negative number. Outside is positive number.

                I think if you shift/drag it bigger, it will make it a square. I would duplicate the rectangle and increase the size by a percentage, then align to the original.

                I've been doing this the hard way for years and I'm just going to ask the stupid question.

                If I have a rectangle, and I want a border around it (not a stroke) that is perfectly aligned (same...
