Message Would anyone be able to tell me how to create your own custom line symbol or have a customized line symbol for something resembling the image attached. It is for a line representing coral. I am replicating this symbol from an AutoCad Map. I haven't been able to find any marker or character symbols that I could use.

Thanks

Message You could use the style manager to import your picture and make it your line symbol or using 9.2 or 9.3 you could convert your symbology to a representation and manually edit the line features to look like your jpeg.

Message When I import my picture, it does not bend and curve to the line like I would want it too. I do not want to manually edit the line feature either since that would be laborious.
