RSART- State diagrams don't highlight overidden transitions in state diagrams

Within RSART 9.1.1, if an inherited transition is updated in a child capsule (e.g. by changing the transition's effect code snippet), the transition becomes an override of the one from the base capsule. The diagram, however, doesn't provide any visual indication that the transition is overridden (the line continues to be displayed using the same light gray format that is used for inherited items). It is suggested that overridden transitions use the same line style as transitions that are unique to the child capsule. Without this, the only way to know a transition is overridden is to right click on it and look at the context menu; if the item is overridden, the menu has Re-Inherit options.

    For the transition effect there is currently a small difference in visualization. The "blue ball" is a little faded for an inherited transition, but becomes solid blue when overriding the effect in the inherited capsule. However, for the transition itself there is no visual difference so we should look into this.
