Linear Feature Patterns

I am trying the get the pegs in this drawing to get further apart from each other as they repeat down the bar.
I have got the extrusion to heights to increase but I can't seem to get the pegs to do the same.
What am I missing?

    Just had a look.  can't find a reason why.  I just learned that you can pattern variables by reading this.  So cool.  Seems logical that the instance spacing should also feed back into itself.

    Yes, I couldn't work it out either...I'm sure there's something obvious I'm missing

    Does you pattern pattern a sketch?  If the sketch has external constraints (the blue ones) those don’t update today in the pattern. I have not looked but that is what it sounds like. We are aware of this limitation and have it logged.

    It does have one horizontal restraint but after removing that it made no difference. I was trying to follow the example in the -Advanced Part Design-Vent but I seem to be missing something
