Inherited items in state diagrams are difficult to see

In state diagrams, RSART uses a light gray line style to denote objects
(e.g. wait states, transitions) that are inherited from a base capsule.
This line style is so light it is very difficult to see. There does
not appear to be any way to changes this via the preferences settings.

    According to the UML standard there are two possible visualizations of inherited elements (chapter 15.3.12 StateMachine):
    Inherited states are drawn with dashed lines or gray-toned lines.

    So it makes sense to introduce a preference which allows users to switch to the alternative presentation using dashed lines, which we do not support today.
