In Ai CS3 I have created a single 'heartbeat' ECG path and want to repeath the path to creat a continuous ECG trace. Is there an automated way to acheive this.
If I have to use 'cut-and-paste' how would I join the individual paths together?
If I understand it in the right way, you may use Effect>Distort & Transform>Transform, setting the Horizontal Move to the width and with the desired number of copies. You may Object>Expand Appearance and join the paths afterwards.
To join, you may use the free Join Reasonably script here:
Or you may do it the Direct Selection of coinciding Anchor Point way.
Or James may post his Join script(s).
Edit: Hi Monika.
Thank you for your replies. I have tried Effect>Distort & Transform>Transform but it doesn't appear to do anything. I have the path selected before I go to the effect. I have chosen 7 copies and offset it using horizontal move by various amounts. Ai thinks it has applied the effect as I can undo it. Where am I going wrong?
