Cricut - Perforated Cut lines into 1 line

Hi Everyone,
I have a box project that I downloaded for free.  It as dashed score lines on it.  My Maker will score each dashed line.  I want to convert it over to 1 long line so I can use the scoring wheel.  I ungroup everything but the dashed lines stay complete.  Is there a way to convert without redrawing a score lines overtop?  I tried Inkscape but not that good with it.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

    Difficult to advise without seeing the file

    It might be that rather than the dash line be a single line with a dashed adtribute  it is a series of separate single lines

    If so>

    if is a svg file it probably going to be easier to open the file in inkscape (free) or corel/ adobe illustrator if you have it
    and edit the line - either joining the dashed paths together - extending one of the line and deleting the rest

    I'm not that familiar with DS
    but you could try this
    determine the length the line needs to be
    delete all but the dash at the beginning of the line (guessing--- the top for vertical line and left for horizontal)
    resize the dash to the length previously determined
    ( you might also have move position depending where the starting point was

    I just resized one node and deleted the rest of the line.  I thought maybe there was a tool that did it automatically.  

    Thanks for the advice though.

    @Wynster - no automatic conversion tool that I am aware of. If you are using Make The Cut! it is easier. Dashed lines may be created as a series of very small single lines. I select the dashed line...if the whole line is selected, then I use Break, I unselect, then select all the bit between beginning and ending lines, delete then I select one end and resize that one to meet the end of the other line, then unselect and then delete the last bit. I use the Layers panel to select that last bit to delete. HTH

    Doing this in DS is horrible at best.
    Still using MTC but slowly migrating to SCAL. KNK cutters including the Force and Maxx Air continue to be my favourites. Fluent in other cutter languages.
