In the Decrease page:

  1. In the Decrease box select the last radio button (decreasing to both sides).
  2. For Last symbol enter the desired decreasing percentage (e.g. 50%).

Remark: When drawing objects with this symbol, you can influence the increasing/decreasing by setting dash vertices. If you set 2 dash vertices along the line, the dot size will increase until the first dash vertex, then remain on the maximum size until the second dash vertex and then decrease towards the end of the line.
