Hello All,

I am trying to add line ornamentation to a line (stroke, path?) in Illustrator. Can one add a symbol to "Type On A Path Tool" to add an ornament a set distance along a line? Is there another method for accomplishing this? I am trying to add some of the FGDC geologic map symbols to my map. I need a bar and ball symbol. Thanks.

I think you are going to want to create a new Art Brush.

There is lots of documentation online and here is a link to a video.
