Surely almost every vector artist faced the situation when he needs to rotate a randomly located object at a certain angle. A famous designer, the creator of the Free Mesh Tormentor plug-in Iaroslav Tabachkovsky will help us to solve this problem. He developed the script RotateAsTop for Adobe Illustrator which possesses all selected objects at the same angle.
To show how the script works we will create a couple of arrows with the Pen Tool (P) and the Stroke Panel which are arranged and rotated in a random order.
Now let’s create a horizontal arrow. As we can see, this object is above the other objects.
Select everything and start the PathRotateAsTop (File > Scripts > PathRotateAsTop ). All the objects turned in the same way as the upper horizontal arrow
Install the scripts into the following folder:
For Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Scripts
For Mac: Applications /Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Scripts
You can download the RotateAsTop script by clicking on the button below.
