I’m attempting in Illustrator to generate a series of images with 6 elements and to maintain their proportions along straight and curved paths.
I have a path that represents a segment of an ellipse, and I’ve retrieved the length of the curved path from Document Info and calculated the length of each element in proportion to the length of the curved path.
I’ve entered the scale in % and the shifts in points in the Effect Transform for each stroke and entered a custom profile for each stroke.
Where can I control the slope of the strokes?
Or how can I constrain the slope of each stroke to equal the slope of the path?
I’m using CS6.
Thanks for your help.
