Paste / repeat symbols / objects along a path
In Indesign you can copy a path and paste it into a text field, including along a path. This is great because if you paste it repeatedly you can then adjust it like you would with type eg changing height and width, spacing etc.
I would like to be able to do the same in illustrator.
This request is somewhat similar to that one:
Allow multiple elements in a scatter / pattern brushes
While I see how a Repeat approach can help to create and control these, why not use Blends or Brushes for that? Blends just provide the same functionality and more. The way blends are control on the desktop though...
Not only because of this, but for more general reasons, this is a must have thing.
Mirror, repeat and array around a circle are all possible, please can we add repeat/array along a defined path.
