Create a 1 axis (Z) mechanism

Hello, I do need your help again.
I am trying to create a vertical linear mechanism using the "Build mechanisms" menu.
But I cant figure out how to use Z-axis as movement axis? I can rotate the whole coordinate system, but this is no option for me, because I need to move the mechanism in Z direction.

Do you have a solution for this issue?

To create a linear mechanism that move on the Z-axis, create a 1 axis translation mechanism and put the "Base shift" and "End-effector shift" Ry to 0 like in the picture.

Thank you, this worked for me :)
