I need dashed lines in a table, so I have inserted them using the graphics tool and drawing dashed lines where I want them. They look fine in FrameMaker, but when I print a PDF version, the dashes have tiny downward "hooks" at the beginning of each dash. How can I prevent this?
Horizontal, vertical, diagonal?
In single cells or spanning cells?
What Line End style?
Horizontal; one spans two cells, the others just one; line end style is "no arrow."
It doesn't show up on a printed hard copy, just in the electronic PDF version.
re: Horizontal; one spans two cells, the others just one; line end style is "no arrow."
You might try the rounded end style.

Just in Adobe Reader, or in all PDF readers (try the one in your phone)? This may actually be a client (reader/viewer) problem, and not something FM is doing, much like the stray lines when raster has odd pixel count in a line.
Worst case: if the lines required are all the same length, or a small number of variants, you could create them externally in a vector editor, and import them on top of the table at SVG or EPS.
