Does any know how a double line symbol can be adjusted to show a specific distance in Arc 10? I have a line feature class which is being used for roads. I'd like to be able to show a double line indicating the extent of the road, having a distance of 5 meters in between, irrespective of zoom scale. I cannot find a way to assign a distance between the two lines in my double line symbol. Any help is appreciated.
Not to hijack this thread (too much!) but does anyone have any good suggestions on how to get a good, cased, dashed-line-for-dirt-road-symbol going? And just to make it a real challenge, how about a dashed-line cul-de-sac symbol?
Tim, thanks for the reference to the 'Ask a Cartographer' site. Using Proportional symbols worked beautifully! Unfortunately, I can't use it because Flex doesn't want to render the new symbol for some reason. It actually causes the Edit widget to crash. Granted, we're still using Flex 2.5 for this particular project, but I can't figure out why it wouldn't support this particular type of symbology. Very frustrating, just when I thought I'd figured it out!
