I want to know is there is any tool in Adobe Illustrator by which we can make changes while copy the object then by pressing ctrl + D it applies changes again and again. Change such as increasing the size of the selected object. To give much clear context I am making Wi-Fi Signal symbol. I have created the 1 bar now I want to make the copy of that bar and increase the size horizontally automatically. I know I can manually make the copy then can adjust the point. But I am looking for automatic tool. Below is the image for clarification:

As I said: Transform again. For the wifi symbol: Set the transformation origin into the centre, then scale the object while making a copy. Use the scale tool for it. Then Transform again.   Will only work when the first arch is not a shape, but just an arch with a fat stroke. And you must turn off scale strokes in the preferences.

Transform panel does the 80 percent job which I am looking for. However, it does not make the copy of the object. For example like I want to make the copy of the Wi-Fi signal in Y Axis which will horizontally wide. I can make the copy and place to it respected area then apply transform on it but I want to know can I make the copy of the object in transform tool also?
