You need to convert the text to lines too.

I don't understand what you are saying.
Or can I ask for a little longer explanation for the translator?

What you said is to draw it as a line and treat it as a symbol. ^^

Sorry. I’ll try and explain a bit better. Line types don’t recognise text or letters. You need to trace over the letter with lines and arcs so that the letters become 2D linework too.

is this the best?
The finish was not processed like the bottom part.
Can you make the beginning and end part handle well?

Actually what I want is to ask because I need now to end with a line with no arrows at the start and end points.

I don’t think there is a way to tell the line type to finish and start with a dash unfortunately.

No, not when it is a 'symbol' line type.

The 'dashed' line types automatically show a solid portion at the start and ends.
