Hello,

     I would like to array a Square Library Element (Tile) along an Arced Path, but am unsure how to do so. The Tile is a raster image.

     I attached a referance of the Template/Guide image showing the Red Dotted Arc. The Tiles need to be laid out abutting each other along this Arc.

      Could you point me to resouces on how to do this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

RD

Does it need to stay editable? If not Scripted Patterns might suffice. 

Otherwise a Scripting approach might help …

But ultimately (if the illustration can be expressed in vector at least) it might be a better fit for Illustrator.

Yes, that can be done with the scripted fill along a path. You will need to save your file as a pattern to your harddrive.
