Checked and used just another line style and saw it works. The line style in the example just has a too long straight line part at the beginning, so the legend does simply not use enough space to make the first gap show up.

Not a new problem, I observe a similar effect with  "Ooo 3.1.1 German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) DE [OOO310m19 (Build 9420)]" for "Ultrafine 2 dots 3 dashes", what looks as if that would be a dotted line, because first dash is only shown as short dot. 

I agree with Armin's analysis.

It's a general legend problem for all  2-style lines.
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-01-26 15:29:40 UTC
I don't think that showing a longer line part in legend would be a good solution. May be we can show dot-dash lines so that the middle of the legend line part is the point on the line where it changes from first (here: dot) style to second (here: dash) style?

I see this one as low priority Enhancement Request
