    Symbol instance set

    clintwestwood Level 1

      Hi

       

      I have several symbols to place in my document. I noticed that it is possible to make a symbol instance set with the symbol sprayer tool.

       

      How can we make a symbol instance set programmaticaly ?

       

      I do not want to make a group with symbols inside

          The Symbol Sprayer creates a piece of kPluginArt, which is basically 'custom art'. So, no, there's no way to do that programatically. The best you could maybe do would be to use the PlayActionSuite to do it, but I'm not 100% sure that's doable. Try recording the spraying; if you can record it and play it back, there's a way, but it'll be ugly.
