-By default, the break line is set up for use along a horizontal passage. This follows the usual style used in the UK; to parallel lines, separated by a horizontal gap, with the tops and bottoms horizontally aligned (no matter whether the lines are drawn vertically or tilted at 45 degrees or more). If you are using it on a vertical section of cave, you can set the "-attr orientation vertical"​ option on the line. This will cause it to leave a vertical gap between the lines, and to align them horizontally compared with each other. This makes only a tiny difference when tilted at 45 degrees, but it looks better, and matches the normal style used in rigging topos.+By default, the break line is set up for use along a horizontal passage.
