Setting the thickness of "simple" dashed lines

Hi, I noticed that in the style manager, when setting up line styles, you cannot set the
thickness of dashed lines. Yet you can in the standard symbology tab. Am I doing something wrong?

Mapping Center Answer:

It looks like you are using the Dashed option of a Simple line type (check the Type box under the Properties which are the left side of the window). If you use some other line type, like a cartographic line, then you can easily change the dashed line width. And you can even change the spacing of the dashes (this is under the Template tab).

Hope this helps!
