When blending a copied Group of Objects (copied by Alt-Shift-click-drag) in the
Specified Steps mode, the original spine constructed by the blending operation is a straight line passing through the centers of all of my groups. How to change that?
I do not want the spine to link the centers of my groups! I want it to pass through the middle-bottom points of my groups (or custom points), because when I replace that straight spine later with a curved path that represents a surface of a ground, my objects get half-way buried underground, instead of sitting on top of the ground.
What I have tried already, unsuccessfully:
- Selecting the middle-bottom reference-point before making my group.
- Selecting the middle-bottom reference-point when making the blend
- Adding anchor points with the Pen Tool to the middle-bottoms of my groups and clicking on these anchor points with the Blend-Tool (the Blend Tool turns to a little black square when it is over these anchor points).
