Hello everyone, I have a little problem with the pattern brush in Illustrator
I have to create many simple curve formed by a patter brush that repeats a simbol (rivers embankmentse etc).
Create brush patter is very simple
The problem is that when I apply this brush, the stroke is aligned with the center of the symbol while I would like to align the base of it

Path alignment does not work with open paths and does not work even with the pattern brush
 
 
 
so I crrate a Invisible rectangle behind the letter like so:

but this introduice distorsion/deformation:

I have also tried with scatter brush but in this way simbologyi no longer aligned with the path:

How can I do to have a brush with the custom symbol and that this works well  without distortion?

I ran into a similar issue using a bicycle symbol along designated paths.  I would be interested if anyone has a solution.  I had to hand place each symbol along especially curvy pathways.

Perhaps I misunderstand the issue.  Why not just offset the path a few points and use that for the type or symbol on a path?
