How change solid line to dashed line in a line chart within a report?

I'm trying to adjust the line style in a SAS VA 7.3 Report to a dashed line, but I don't see an option for that.  I know that in the data explorer if you have enough lines, the lines will automatically be put into solid and dashed lines.  What is the best way to change line style in SAS VA report designer 7.3?  Do future version of SAS VA have the ability to change line styles?

The default Properties and Styles for a Line Chart don't provide the option to change the type of line, but you can achieve this look by creating a custom Line Chart using Custom Graph Builder.

 

On the properties for the custom graph, you can specify a Line Pattern:
