Hi, in my job I often need to fill spaces with multiple instances of a symbol with no overlaps or cut off such as this:

Used on sequin boards and similar items. In the example I have placed the '2's one at a time but wondering if anyone knows of a way I can do this automatically to speed up my work?

Hi @Monika Gause 

 

Is this the plugin?  https://astutegraphics.com/plugins/stylism

 

I ask because there is no mention of symbols in the specs or demo video.
