New Version of Arc Twister

ArcTwister is reborn... Same functionality, but new interface. Now you don't need to install a separate SWF, and the dialog is better than v.1. New dialog looks like this:

And, like the swf version, the object(s) are adjusted each time you release a slider... Slick huh?

New Script "Extrude Faces"

Extrude Faces

Ta Dahhhh! A quick way to extrude selected anchors from a path object.
Just select a handful of sequential anchors with the Direct Selection Arrow (it's keyboard shortcut is "a" if you didn't know...)

When you run this script, it adds an anchor point at the beginning and the end of your point selection. This allows you to drag your selected points as if they were extruded from the pathObject.

This script was really a solution looking for a problem, I just wanted to see if I could do it.
Of course, sometimes these projects turn out to be the most popular...
If you find it useful, let me know. Check it.

New Script: allPoints

S'poze you have a shape like this, and you want to draw a line from every point to every other point. OK, no problem. Just turn on "snap to points" drop a few lines, and you're done in 10 seconds. But what if you want to do something a little more complex, or something a little MORE complex?
Well if you do, you're going to love my new little script allPoints.

This script draws all connecting lines groups them together. The original object is kept but is not included in the group. It works on any single selected path item, and it's really, really fast . . . even works on stars and objects drawn freehand.

So, enough babble. Get to it kiddies - make me proud.
