# Drawing Keynote Line Style using Tikz

What is a simple way to draw a line in tikz with a style similar to the following line created in Apple Keynote?

• If you don't mind, what is the purpose of this ? – BambOo Sep 9 at 8:40
• @BambOo That's a good question to ask. However, one can also ask from Apple the same question, and why did they add this line style in Keynote. For me, I have a scientific paper that I am splitting parts of a matrix with different line styles. I prefer simple styles as my figure is already occupied with different shapes, and using tikz decorative lines is not an option. – The Legend of 1991 Sep 10 at 2:25
• My question was simply related to the weight of such plots. I'm pretty sure using such lines is very bad in terms of document size. – BambOo Sep 10 at 14:53
