Description Mike A. Fargo 2013-07-04 14:52:48 UTC
This wish concerns drawing lines in all modules (writer, draw, calc ...).

Currently, there is a line style editor, where you can edit line ends, width, or choose a style like dotted line etc.

I'd wish to have some wavy line style here (first step). 

Probably, a vector editor is better than an old school bitmap field:
If you consider the wavy line as a sine around the base line, one
could probably state its amplitude ('outer width') and its frequency (here, 
opinions might spread).

Later on: a zigzag line, a double line, a square wave line, a saw tooth line, an alternating line like _-_-_-_-_-_-_- (like pulse wave).

Thanks for supporting my "Ken Burns" suggestion, too ;)

Kind regards

Add Wavy Line Style is very important also for me.

I use libreoffice  to create drills and the wavy line is very important to define the path of the players with the ball

Please consider to implement it in future releases

Really thank you for all the work you are doing.
