Creating dotted or dashed lines

How in God’s name do you create dotted or dashed lines in this program? I’m trying out Sketchup Pro 2021, and I’ve tried everything possible to draw a dotted or dashed line, and nothing works. I create a new tag called dashed and set the line type to a dashed type. I draw a line and assign the tag dashed to it, and its still a solid line. How does it work in Sketchup?


Make sure the style you’re using has Dashes enabled. Edit the style if needed.

Also make sure you use Tags correctly. ALL edges and faces should be created and remain untagged. Only groups and components should get tags so put the edges in a group or component.

Might be worth spending some time going through the tutorials at
