Faster item copy in Illustrator using scripting

matrix

One thing I wish it was better at was making an array of objects based on selection. Here is a script I wrote to automatically do it for you. You can use move and transform but it involves a lot of math and isn’t very fast. This is a more efficient way of doing so.

I think it is very self explanatory, but here is a video just in case.

Place the script in:

/Applications/Adobe Illustrator CC/Presets.localized/en_US/Scripts

Now it will load into the menu when you reboot Illustrator
