RSARTE: Make it possible to set the default line style

When drawing state diagrams, I prefer lines having a rectilinear line style, the default is oblique however. This can be changed by right-click->Format->Line style but there is no way to set this as being the default.

Make it possible to set this (and possibly others) in the preferences

    We will consider adding such a preference for a future release.

    Yes, a new preference in Modeling - Appearance - Connectors for setting the default line style would be useful.
