    Aesthetics: How can I distinguish data marks before and after a certain date?

    Patrick T

      I have a line chart, and I would like to differentiate data before and after a specific date. Currently, I just have a constant reference line indicating the separation date.

       

      However, I'd like something more pleasing to the eye. I was hoping to be able to use a dashed line or something for before the specific date, and a solid line after. However, this doesn't seem to be possible (at least easily possible) in Tableau.

       

      Doing it with colors simple, as seen below.

      However, my actual data is already categorized by color..

      How can I go about differentiating this data based on whether it's before or after a specific date?
