    Default distributing objects around another object in DP X

    Is there an easy way to distribute, say 20 objects, around another object, sort of like distributing chairs around a table?

    Thanks.

    Info Re: distributing objects around another object in DP X

    If all the objects were different then manual object placement to the nodes of a 20-point star would be my first stab.

    If they are all the same then an Art brush where you can change the Line Width to vary the number of objects (chairs):

    Seating round a Table.xar

    Changing the circle to Editable shapes allows for smooth convex layouts to be handled.

    Thanks a lot, both of you! I figured there had to be a simple way.
