not currently...or perfectly...i would suggest doing it in illustrator and importing it into photoshop. Illustrator will do PERFECT dashed/dotted lines.

You can do it in photoshop real easy.

First select the pencil or paintbrush tool-
Got to your "Brush Pallette" and double click on a brush, this will bring up your "Brush Option" box
Detemine how big you want the brush size (this will be your line weight) by adjusting the "diameter"
then make sure the "spacing" box is checked and adjust the spacing, the higher the number the more space between the dots.
close the box.

Now when you go to use your brush it will draw in a dotted line pattern. To make straight lines, hold shift, and draw.

I agree with Osiris and Kennon. Doing the whole thing in photoshop is much easier then flipping inbetween programs all the time
