New Bitmap Brush won't keep size or Spacing

Okay so I create a new bitmap brush, and I space it out so it resembles a necklace which is exactly what I want it to look like. It works great the first time but when I switch to another brush and then switch back to the ‘necklace brush’ it does not retain the spacing or the size info. How do I do that? Or is it not possible?

I am not a Storyboard user and my Trial expired however if you can post pictures I may be able to help. These tools are similar in other TB software if not identical. I really need to see an example of this brush. Then I might be able to suggest what to do.

Does anyone monitor this forum or is it dead?
