a simple object position swap in the transormation panel
A simple object position swap tool.
I make data/scientific figures with AI. I do a lot of ordering and aligning of objects, often I have 4-5 scatter plots generated in R and I resize and align them in AI. I often want to reorder them after I have gotten the alignment perfect, so currently the most efficient process is clicking on each individual object and writing down the x,y coord. for each and then typing these in for each object. A simple button to swap objects based on their x,y coordinate (wherever the ref point is set) would save me a lot of time.
Search for a script (there is one), that does this. Put it in action and assign shortcut.
