    How do I make a sine wave in illustrator?

      Hi,

       

      I started a thread earlier this evening but I think that I accidentally flagged it as "solved" or something like that (I'm new to this forum). So I'm trying this again. I want to know if there's a way of creating a sine wave in illustrator. I've managed to create a cosine wave by using the zig zag effect on a line and choosing "smooth". But I can't seem to find a good way to make a sine wave.

       

      This is the difference for anyone wondering:

      I want a sine wave just like the picture above.

       

      Thanks for the help!
