Can someone tell me an easy way to make several objects to be of equal size/ or equal width / or equal height.

I haven't been able to find such a command in Illustrator.

In the scripts section you will find the script "Set all the things"

The transform palette will let you enter width or height. If you enter a size then press Command Enter you'll scale the selection proportionately. Repeat for all obects/groups.

Thanks for the suggestion, but this is not a "quick and easy" way if I have e.g. 50 pictures imported into the document that have to be made of equal size before arranging them into a figure for publication (something that I have to do routinely for my work). I will have to type 50 times the required values for each individual picture.

Some graphics programs have a "Make equal size" command that can achieve this for the whole batch in one or two clicks, but such a command seems to be missing in Illustrator. The "Transform each" command does not allow to specify a size and the scaling option is useless in my case.

I would be grateful to hear more suggestions.

You could make is a script. Perhaps it is actionable. Not trying now, but I'll guess Not.

It could be done with Javascript, but shouldn't have to be, given that Illustrator has a Transform Each dialog. It should reside there in the form of a relative/absolute radio button option.

There should also be a checkbox for Proportional, so one doesn't have to key the same value in both scale fields. Same goes for Transform Effect dialog.

Random should be provided as separate checkboxes for the Scale, Move, and Rotate areas, instead of just one for all three.

Assuming that each of your graphics exists somewhere as an individual file, I'd do this project in InDesign. Make a grid of box frames of the size you want, apply Place and get all the graphics at once, and click once on each box in order. Drag select all the boxes and apply Object - Fitting - Fit Content Proportionately.
