Radial Layout? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is there a way in OG 5 to radially distribute objects around a center point? For instance, I would like to layout tick marks on a circle similar to a clock face, or compass face. Manually rotating each object might work but is tedious and difficult to properly align. Thanks.
 
There's a handy AppleScript to do this up at Peter McMaster's site.

Hope it helps,

I tried this, but had difficulty getting it to work correctly (I seem to remember it working with OG4). Instead of laying the objects out in a circle, it seems to somewhat randomly (i.e. I can't figure it out) place them on the canvas.

I didn't know if there was another way. I'll also see if Peter would be willing to update his script.
 
It's likely a change in AppleScript in Leopard, we've had a number of scripts in the past that needed updating to run properly in 10.5.

Peter McMaster confirmed that the script doesn't currently work for "line" objects in either OG4 or OG5. He's going to take a look at it.
