in fact sorry to be a pain,

 

can it be created in such a way that the midpoint of the zigs is effectively the centreline of the line?

 

also the scale needs to slightly bigger, ie, when i scale the lintetype up it creates a bigger space between the "zigs" but the height remains the same!

 

Sorry to be a pain!

 

Cheers

phil
