You can also do this with two dashed-line strokes applied to a single path, and save the appearance as a graphic style. The dash and gap of each stroke (black and red) must total the same number (24+24 = 1+47) to stay in sync, but can be adjusted to any value. The red tick stroke has a stroke profile applied in which the width is all on one side. I think (hope) that it's fussier to explain than it is to make.

Tim,

 

In both cases, you can create it as follows:

 

1) Create the visible tick as Stroek/Nofill as desired vertically, then move a copy up by the height and set its Stroke to None, then Group the two;

2) Define the Group as a new Scatter Brush, with the desired settings, remember to rotate relative to path;

3) Create the path and copy it, then apply the Scatter Brush to the copy, then Group the two.

Thanks.  I think the scatter brush is what I am looking for.  BTW do you know if the scatter brush can be shared in my CC library?

The solid-line version can be done the same way, but the black line is not dashed, and requires no adjustment for spacing:

Graphic styles are here.

Tim,

 

I think the exquisite Double Dash by Peter is what you are looking for.

 

 

Edit: Hi Peter, it is here still (at least partially), how there?
