Faster item copy in Illustrator using scripting

Picture

One thing I wish it was better at was making an array of objects based on selection. Here is a script 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.

walkthrough on how to use it here: http://vimeo.com/76484456

the script:

Place the script in:
/Applications/Adobe Illustrator CC/Presets.localized/en_US/Scripts

Now it will load into the menu when you reboot Illustrator

ok go make cool wireframes!
