How do I resize multiple shapes to the same dimensions?

I have a bunch of sponsor names I need to size to exactly 11"W x 1.75"H each. Transform Each won't work for me because it is a percentage scale, not WxH. I seem to recall there even used to be a panel for this sort of thing--and it looked a lot like the Transform panel--but I can't find it anywhere.

 

Aside from sizing them one-by-one, what is the quickest way to do this?

You could try the SetAllTheThings script:

This seems like it would be great, except I really have no idea how to use a script like that in Illustrator. That looks like a lot of code just to size a few objects lol.

Get the raw text:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/johnwun/js4ai/master/setAllTheThings.jsx

Right-click and Save As a .jsx file.

Either save to the scripts folder: Adobe Illustrator 2022\Presets\en_GB\Scripts to access via File > Scripts

Or wherever you like (access via File > Scripts > Other script)

Selecting the script from the menu will run it.

 

It's a lot of code because it can set many different parameters, not just size. It's a very useful script.

I found the panel I was talking about. It's contextual and only shows up when you select a bunch of rectangles. But it doesn't look like the same thing will work with outlined text. Unfortunate. 😕

 

Any other ideas?
