Custom Line Type Reference Line Justified to One Side

EH21
Booster

Does anybody know how to create a custom, asymmetrical line? I.E., when I draw the line, I want the symbol to be justified to one side and not centered on the custom symbol created. There is a stone symbol in Archicad which does this, but I cannot find a way to replicate the phenomenon. See attached images which show how the symbol relates to the drawn rectangle. The new one I'm trying to create (bottom) is using the center point of the symbol I drew as the reference line while the stone symbol (top) uses the top horizontal axis of the symbol as the reference line.

@David Shorter Maybe you should create a topic and describe your issues in detail.

I thought I was answering the original question where the linetype was thickened on one side of the ref line and not centred
