Keep dashed lines from turning into solid lines

Does anyone know how to prevent dashed lines from turning into solid lines when bringing over a file from Illustrator to Glowforge? I have saved it as a SVG file (although it still shows as HTML) but when I bring it over Glowforge brings up a message saying my dashed lines are being converted to solid lines. Any tips on how to prevent this? Thanks!

There is a post I ran across earlier this evening about doing stitch holes for leather. I’ll see if it is in my history.

Here is what I was looking at. Maybe it will help.

Yeah, the dashed line in AI is an appearance along a path, not individual dashes.

There’s a tutorial on using a Brush to create actual dashed lines here:
