Hi All

I have an amount of strokes which are 22px and the distance of each stroke is 4.4px. I try to use the align option in illustrator and type in 26.4px in distribute spacing option. It works great.

When I rotate the stroke, the distance of each stroke is same, but when I add one more line and then type in 26.4px in distribute spacing option again. It comes the result like this. resultresult

I have a solution that adding the stroke and then distribute them in 26.4px before the rotation. However, it is quite stupid as each time when I add the stroke, each time I need to make the stroke vertically and then distribute them in same distance and then rotate them once again. Just want to see if there is any solution that I dont need to rotate them again. Thank you.

matchancc,

 

I believe you mean Distribute Objects rather than Distribute Spacing.

 

You can add a number of nostroke paths to start with (while they are still vertical) and then give (one/some of) them strokes afterwards as needed/desired, and delete those unneeded when you are certain.

 

Or you can select the latest stroke/path, then Object>Transform>Move by (+/-) 18.667619 px, or (more) rounded 18.6676px, both horizontally and vertically, remember to use Copy, then recolour the new stroke. After that you can use Ctrl/Cmd+D to repeat as long as the values are kept.

 

18.667619px corresponds to 26.4
