How can I draw a line like this? I need the small dash in the middle of the line.

Workaround: draw 2 lines instead, but the result is not very consistent.

Workaround: Write the dash as text. Use key F2 to switch into text edit mode. Be not confused with the edit mode. There the text is always separate and upright, but when editing is finished, it goes to the position set in "Text" and that is "centered" as default. You can use any font and character with the "Special character" dialog, so it should be possible to find a suitable glyph. The division slash at U+2215 or the fraction slash at U+2044 might work for you.

@Regina. Nice workaround. Easier than draw 2 lines.
