Does anyone know how to create corner-aligned dashed lines in Inkscape? I am looking for a similar feature that exists in Adobe Illustrator (see http://tv.adobe.com/watch/learn-illustrator-cs5/creating-corneraligned-dashed-lines/) I am not able to find this feature or a workaround in Inkscape version 0.91.

Thank you in advance,

    Welcome on GD! Have you ever tried to work on the dash offset? See here and tell us something about your efforts! – Paolo Gibellini Nov 6 '15 at 16:58

The SVG working group proposed the property stroke-dashcorner in their draft for upcoming SVG versions. The property does what you want, but is (as far as I know) not supported by any SVG renderer yet. Maybe in the future ...

At the moment, I only see two options:

  1. Play with the dash offset (as Paolo suggested).
  2. Draw the corner dashes manually.
