Office 365 (Powerpoint), esES - Suggestion for "dashes" in Graphics Outline when editing SVG images

Frequent Contributor

Description: "Dashes," and not "hyphens," are usually translated as "rayas" into Spanish.
Language: Spanish (esES)
Current translation: Guiones
Suggested translation: Rayas
Reason: The term "guion" is polysemic, and the closest it relates to "dash" is when it's a punctuation mark, not a design mark. For that purpose, to better convey that "dashes" are design marks, and also to be consistent with the current translation of "dash" in Spanish, I would like to suggest using "rayas" to be more clear on these two points. When checking this feature, the "Guiones" option made me think of en dashes and scripts (movie scripts), as "guion" also means "script" in Spanish. "Raya" could avoid this ambiguity.
English text: Dashes
