I am trying to write write a script for Adobe Illustrator (AS or JS) which takes a set of objects and one by one replaces them with a brush style applied to a single point (one anchor path) or a symbol instance. Needs to be accurate as it's a graph with 300 'points'.
Looking for help with the following tasks:
What I'm also wondering:
All I have to work from is the sample Adobe Script that creates a tree symbol the duplicates it around the edges of the page. Not quite there yet :-)
One of the reasons I'm doing this is that I can then stretch the graph to expose the data and not have to transform each to get the shapes back into shape but mainly because some of the paths are very jaggy and ugly out of the stats program (Excel?!).
