Thread Profile Thread Pitch Help

I am genuinely confused.

Trying to design my own thread profiles like so.

But the guidelines state that the Pitch must be greater than the Profile.

To have no flat spot, I would of thought the profile needs to be the same as the pitch.

When I try it as drawn, i get error "Height of profile is greater than pitch".

 

Do I really have to adjust the profile and have a microscopic flat spot in order for solidworks to be able to generate the thread?
