      The stairs in X1 work a little differently. It's not necessary to
      change to dash lines in order to see stuff under the stairs. You can
      change the Fill from solid to none or move the stairs to a Back Group.

        Ellis,

        I believe you can change the stair in v!! to use no fill so it is see-though

        if you want to add custom lines to v!! you can use the same format as
        before in notepad then use the *.lin extension for the file when you
        save, you can then import it through the menu dialog in v!!

        ie..paste the text below into notepad and save it as
        [mylinestyles].lin...then go to the menu>import...somewhere there is a
        listing top import the linestyles
