You can change the line style of a chart. These settings do also apply to other chart types besides Line charts and Kagi charts, because the line style also affects the bars in bar charts, empty candles in Candlestick and Heikin Ashi charts, the boxes of Point and Figure charts, etc.

The colors used for the time series in a chart are also defined here. For chart types that use more than one color, you can find more information in the next section, Color-Coding Price Relations.

Some of the line style settings are only available for certain chart types and compressions.
