Today we present you useful script for Adobe Illustrator. This scripts has been designed by a talented Ukrainian developer and a friend of mine – Yemz, who is also known as the developer of the Free Mesh Tormentor Plugin. The Random Order script places the selected objects in random order in the Layers panel.
You can download Random Order script by clicking the Download button on this page.
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
To demonstrate the work of the script we take any symbol from the Symbol library and using the Symbol Sprayer Tool splash it on our Artboard.
Now select other symbols and repeat the action couple of times.
Select all the Symbol Sets and go to the Object > Expand and then ungroup the received groups (Object > Ungroup).
Note, you need to ungroup the objects in order to mix them. Keep the objects selected and go to the Object > Script > Random Order.
The objects haven't changed their coordinates but changed their position in random order in the Layers panel. If you are not happy with your result, launch the script again.
You can get a pretty difficult vector textures while using this script. For example, I created the texture of the pebble.
