First Ctrl-click on the dashed line to select it. Then, click the green magnifying glass icon near the bottom right of the Chimera window to open the Selection Inspector. In the Inspector window (Inspect: Pseudobond):
(1) change “halfbond mode” to “off”, otherwise it will get colored by the atoms instead of having its own color
(2) click or doubleclick the square color thing to make the Color Editor window appear, in which you can change the color
To make the dashed line fatter, stay in the Inspector tool but now use pulldown menu to Inspect: Pseudobond group (instead of just Inspect: Pseudobond), then:
change “line width” to some bigger number
I hope this helps,
