I am trying to create a simple visual, but I can't find a good way to align smaller blue circles within a larger arc. You can tell I've just kind of eye-balled it. Here is what I'm working with: I tried using transform distort → transform and that was able to make copies of the circles very quickly, but in the end I couldn't find the "magic" number to move the circles about the arc. So back to square one.
Is there a more precise approach to place the blue circles around the arc at the center of each segment that I can bring to bear with AI? What would that be? I hope there is an easier way than my approach above.
