@t_j I really like this idea. I have been drawing lines and adding tick marks then resizing the ticks to be the same (or pretty close to the same). This appears SO much easier, esp for curved lines. I am in the process of editting some of my drawing to add ticked lines (to either solid or dashed lines) and will give this a try.
Guessing I can change the font size and kerning to adjust spacing, too.
Okay, I have tried this a few times and I cannot get the text to flow on the shape, it keeps flowing around the text box but not the line.
I know I have done this before but can’t figure out why not working now (I really need this! ;-)
