YES! How do I do that? Glen
The Shape Dynamics settings are visible in the first screenshot, after you set those and the Brush Tip Shape (see second screenshot) you can select the Path in the Paths Panel and click the »Stroke path with brush-button«.
Should you want a rectangular tip you may have to create a custom Brush tip.
But have you considered using Illustrator?
With that you may maintain better editability of the strokes.
Thank you! I will try this. I have not yet begun to use Illustrator, and don’t want to stop to learn that now, so I will try to use your suggestions to make it work in PS. Thank you very much! Glen
I am afraid I forgot to mention you need to select the Brush Tool first … but you would probably have figured that out.
I tried to carry out what you suggested, but did not succeed, and solved the problem in another way. I think the issue is that I’m not yet an Illustrator user at all, and in fact, have only used the Adobe PS drawing capabilities for very simple annotations over airphotos. If you felt like putting together the whole sequence (with more guidance), I could certainly use it next time, but you’ve already done more than your share! Thank you!
From your name, I’m guessing that you may be in Germany. I lived there almost eight years, and loved it!

Christophe used one of the Calligraphy brushes which you can 'Append' by clicking on the little cog icon after right clicking to show the brush preset panel. Note the brush outlined is vertical.
Two settings need to be changed.
1) Angle jitter needs to be set to Direction in Shape Dynamics
2) Spacing needs to set to give the required line density.
It is then a simple matter of drawing the work path with the Pen tool, and Stroking that path.
Right click the work path and make sure Brush is selected, and that the brush size is about right, and click OK. Note Simulate Pressure should be turned off.
Having done it once, you can repeat this process by clicking on this icon at the bottom of the paths panel
