This is a fairly simple request but it's had me stumped for the past couple of hours. I basically want to create a circle of triangles that I can then animate. Basically so far I have made a single triangle and then used a repeater to duplicate them into a line. I now want to make the line of triangles into a circle and the best way I could think of doing that is to align the repeating triangles along a path.

I've made an ellipse to use as a path but I can't seem to work out how to then get the triangles to follow along the circular path.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would find a wingdings font that had a triangle, create a row of triangles, then just copy a circle into the text path options.
