And while you are at it, this would be nice to also increase the weight for non solid lines.

Hi TJ,

It's because the lines are plotted from bar to bar. Since the distance between your bars is smaller than the lenght of a single dash, separate dashes look like a solid line. You can experiment with increasing the space between the bars and you will see that there will be space between dashes.

If you want to keep this distance b/w the bars, try using shorter dashes.

Hi fanus,

I discussed weights for non-solid indicator plots with our development team a while ago and, according to them, the system slows down tremendously when working with think non-solid lines. I'll ask our engineers to look into that again to see if this problem can be easily resolved.

Regards.

as you can see from my attachment, the bar spacing is NOT that close.

maybe you can use the small dash as big dash, and make the small dash even smaller?

just a suggestion...
