Fill and Stroke/Stroke Style/Dashes - not working

Asked by Ronna Cruz on 2019-04-06

I am working on a project in inkscape and when I go to stroke style in the fill and stroke box, I am unable to click on it. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong. I am completing an assignment, and I have to change a solid line to a dash...can't do it. I am clicking on the line that I want to turn into a dashed line with the select tool, then I open the fill and stroke panel, click the stroke styles tab, and then try to click the dashes drop down list, but it doesn't respond. Nothing happens. Help

Make sure the stroke has a color and a width before you try to give it a dash pattern.

Set the color in the second tab of that same dialog. Select to have 'plain color' instead of the X.
Set the stroke width in the third tab of the dialog.

Can you help with this problem?
