Currently all relationships are shown as dashed lines in the EER diagram. To help visualise models with hundreds or thousands of relationships it would be very helpful to be able to change the style (dashed, dotted, etc) and colour of the lines.

How to repeat:
Open any large model and be overwhelmed by all the relationship lines.

Suggested fix:
I propose two properties available in the properties list when selecting relationships. It is vital that they be able to be edited as a group when selecting more than one relationship.

Colour: [  ] #FFF
Style: dashed

As an optional extra, the existing checkbox "draw split" could become one of the line styles. Really this is just a fully transparent line style.

For further bonus points another option for thickness of the line would be useful, but not nearly as important:

Thickness: 1px
