Thank you for that screenshot, Jennifer! I'm so sorry you ran into this.

We have an open issue in Storyline 360 with blurriness on dashed lines and lines with a custom end type. I'm tagging this discussion so I can circle back with any new information!

For now, one workaround is to use block arrows instead of line arrows. Let us know if you need a hand!

@Vincent Scoma, Oh no, not the Block Arrows :-)

Lines are sharp and clear, but when you add an arrowhead, dot etc. (or using the Arrow) it's getting blurry. So I just took all the arrowheads away from my lines and added a rectangle instead, on top of the line. With duplicate and rotate it doesn't take so long time to add them to several lines. And the result is sharp, clear and thin "arrows".

I have a slide with multiple lines, both solid and dashed. The weight was originally set at 2. I decided it was a little too heavy and wanted to change weight on all of them to 1.  When I change the weight, the lines become blurry and thick.  I literally had to delete every line (which was A LOT!) and start over with new lines, set to "1" to begin with. This has happened on multiple slides, multiple times (eg) consistently changing to blurry if weigh of line is change.  Very frustrating! What's the deal?!

Hi Laurie,

I've been there and I agree, it is frustrating and it takes a lot of time. As soon as you try to use anything else than a solid line, they will get blurry. That goes also for solid lines with any kind of customized start or end point. Here is a solution/workaround.

If you need lines with arrowhead or any start or end point, just use a solid line and insert a triangle form in the end of the line. 

And for dashed lines, use a text box or some other shape and type the dashes or underlines.

Not optimal but a workaround.

See attached file. Hope this will help you.
