Hi!

 

I would like to add circles (eg) to each corner of a path.

I can make it easily if I break my path into separate segments and use arrowheads, but I would prefer to keep it one single path.

I have tried using a pattern brush, but the shapes are deformed, some of the corners don't show if the angle isn't sharp enough.
(I have also tried with a dotted line, rounded path ends and 0mm dash and long gap eg but it doesn't work if my segments are different lengths).

 

Any idea? Thanks in advance!

Thanks, Crooty, this is the much sought-after badge that was missing in my sumptuous collection of medals until today.

given the limitations, I would do it like Met1 suggested. I would trigger a script repeatedly as needed. Femke's script would probably need an upgrade to remove previously added circles though.

 

[Edit] or I would just delete the circles manually before running the script to create a new set
