I have a simple symbol that I am using to create a web menu. So it is like boxes stacked up on each other.
I thought that I would make my single box a symbol but then I can't change the color of each one. So I also thought I could use a blend to get my 6 or 7 boxes distributed perfectly as well.
So If I have a half dozen or so symbols how do I distribute them evenly vertically and change each symbol color?
Use the Distribute Spacing in the Align panel. Click on the objects you want to distribute, single click again to set the key olbject and then select the distance from the dropdown (says Auto here but you can specify the distance)
As for the other you would have to would have to Break link to symbol from the Symbol panel to recolor.
That cracked it!
