Hi

I need to re-draw the line in the figure with both points and solid line.

 

I could add a whole bunch of circle objects over the image points then draw a path between them. Then format all that...

 

But - is there a more automatic way?  like drawing the path and than re-formatting the anchor points as hollow circles?  Or any trick that I can learn that would make this easier?

 

Thanks - jballou

Interesting script! 

 

But I have no idea how to run a script in AI. Can you help?

Save this as a .jsx

You can put it wherever you like, but if you place it in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2022\Presets\en_GB\Scripts it'll be available through the File > Scripts menu in Illustrator.

Go to File > Scripts

Choose a file from the list (if the script is in the above folder) or choose Other Script (if it's somewhere else).

Either way once you choose a script, it will run.

 

This specific script depends on you having anchor points selected (or an entire object) and another foreground object which will be duplicated  at those points.
