Make good use of the various shapes of dashed and dotted lines in your various artwork.
The basic way to make a dashed line
Draw a stroke with the Pen or Line Segment Tool and display the [Stroke panel] with the stroke selected.
Check the [Dashed Line] box in the Stroke Panel and specify the [dash] and [gap], you can create a dashed line. Enter only the necessary part, and leave the extra box blank. In the empty boxes, the number entered before will be repeated.
More complex dashed lines can be created by setting different numbers in the six boxes. You can also create vertical dashed lines by increasing the line weight and decreasing the number of line segments.
