Dashed line not exporting correctly

I have a dataset with railroad and I have to give then the "standard" railroad style. I had to create a custom one from our client speficiation but the "transverse" lines aren't showing on about a half of the map. I tried ArcMap's default railroad symbol, or using a character marker to create the transverse lines but with the same result.

I had the same problem with another layer (city boundary) represented with a long dash and 2 short one and I had to cut my lines in 10 meters section for them to export correctly. Tried that with my railroad (500, 250, 100, 50 and 10m sections) but it didn't work.

I tried ESRI Resource Center's workaround ( for the same kind of problem and it didn't work either.

Is there another factor I should check? Another know reason why my lines arent exporting correctly?


Mapping Center Answer:

This is unusual behavior and we're not sure why this is happening so we suggest you contact Esri Technical Support so that they can work with you on the problem.
