Default Paint Effects following a Curve

I have a curve and want a paint effect to follow it to make it look like it's writing it. The only problem is that I want the effect to face the Y direction but it's going all over the place, is there a way to solve this?

maybe there's an "up-vector" setting somewhere. That should sort it. I don't use pfx so I couldn't really tell you but that would be my guess.

What about curve on surface, and check normal direction?

Then hide surface?

......hmmm... not sure either...
