This is the (final?) version of this script based on object-on-path by luca moroni. I added several parameters to scale/scatter and fade.
New options fit-random alter the fitting of the objects along the paths
See luca moroni's post object-on-path for more examples.

EDIT : version 3 uses matrix transformation rather than direct scale routines.
I realised that paths and fills needed to scale as well.

I lied.

Version 2 allowed you to turn the objects to symbols when you select them - I believe that will save space and allow you to change them after you have built the patterns.
It also allows you to choose text items without converting to paths :-)

I tried it with illustrator cs5, and as i recall the script receive an error:
"Error 2: script not defined
Line 9

  • > script.coordinateSystem = 'bottom-up';

Thank you

did your install of Scriptographer work ok ?
Need that to be successful , and a restart of illustrator before trying to run a script
