I try to create a custom style in QGIS for some of my polygons I'm using. The border of the polygons should look like this:

Polygon Style

I tried to create two dashed lines (with a offset for one and some spacing for both) to create two parallel lines. But at this point I already have some trouble finding the right values. Also, I have no idea to create the vertical lines. Any clues?

There you go: link to qgis-style

You might want to change some stuff. Real customization would be building your own svg and using that one.

Short addon on how to create custom borders: Property of layer -> style -> single symbol -> change layer type to marking line. Then choose a proper symbol from the presets, or build your own svg and use that one (maybe you have to, if you really need the serifs).

    Since the objective of stack exchange it to share knowledge, I would prefer to see an explanation of how you were able to do the style. Even if you provide it in the end. Feb 28, 2018 at 10:11
  • @AlexandreNeto I'll provide this when I come around to changing QGIS to english and doing all the screenshots.
