I've attached an image of the effect I'm after.
I'm wanting to create a travel path on a map using the pen tool with the anchor points converted to dots representing destinations. This sounds simple if I add seperate dot shapes but theres over 100 destinations and I need to drag and change them on a whim.
Any hints tips or suggests would be greatly appreciated.
It's not really clear to me, what the desired effect is.
To the original post, the only trick I'd offer is to use the Direct Select tool, so you can 'lasso' the path point and the circle in one action, then drag both to the new location. It really doesn't take that much time to click your mouse 100 times.
It sounds like the OP was looking for something that would somehow just know what path to draw, then put a circle at each point in the path.
If you search 'illustrator scripts' or 'illustrator scripts random', you might find a script that does something similar.
If you're just looking for random scatter, that can be achieved with a custom brush.
