I'm not in front of SW at the moment, I'm on 2017 and I can't remember for sure, if 2016 actually had the Instances to vary option, but 2016 help says it does:
As an alternative, you can create several planes normal to your lines' sketch plane and the relate each of your lines coincident to a plane.
Each plane's position from the first can be programmed in the Equations dialog if you have an algebraic formula for this since your OP states a diminishing spacing.
Removing instances may be more problemmatic since the spacing is constant.

So I need to vary the spacing of a single line sketch. I have a sketch of a vertical line, and I need to repeat this line in a linear pattern, but the spacing needs to decrease for each instance. Solidworks 2016 doesn't seem to include "instances to vary" for a linear sketch pattern as it does for linear feature pattern. Any way around this? Thanks
Thanks for the alternate suggestion, Kevin. I'll try messing with it tomorrow. About the help page, where do you see the instances to vary option? I only see instances to skip
Sorry, it is skip.
