It's ofcourse better to have the implementation more flexible, but I'm actually just searching for a double-line and hope to have something working in a decent timeschedule. Plus it's a good way for me to get used to the dia codebase :) If I get used to that, perhaps I can contribute (I didn't use dia before until now, but I really think it's going to help me with my current studies -- give or take a few features :) > objects/standard/line.c/line_draw() affects only the "Standard - Line" > object. It is on the "Standard - Line" that I want to achieve the double-line feature. But even when I clear the line_draw() function from dia, the "Standard - Line" still shows. When I double-click on that line, I get the properties for it (and it sais "Properties: Standard - Line") so I'm pretty sure I'm working with the correct object :) Wkr, Sven Vermeulen -- Save some animals, eat a vegetarian.
