Radial Repeat

Hello, I used the radial repeat tool to create a flower shape and then grouped the center circle with all of the radial repeats I created (a total of 7.)

 

When I select the flower, the only part which shows selected (blue anchors showing) is the original circle in the very middle from which the radial repeats were made. When I move the flower, it all moves together since they are grouped but wondering why the blue anchor points aren't showing up on any of the radial repeats when the flower is selected.

 

I just want to know should I be expanding this as an effect or is this just the way radial repeat looks when selected, that only the original object which was selected to repeat, shows the blue anchors? I've included a screen shot of what the flower looks like when selected.

 

Thanks so much.

Hi Kurt, OK, I'll see if I can expand it. That was what I was trying to figure out, if the radial repeat is an effect or not that needs to be expanded. I'll give it a try and see if the radial repeats show the anchor points and paths when selected.

Hi Kurt, that did it. I guess I now need to expand the all the flowers in my pattern swatch to close the loop. Thanks for your help! 🙂
