What is Adjust Objects; Retain Positions?

Adjust Objects; Retain Positions (AORP) is a macro that allows one of a number of adjustments to be applied to objects in the active selection range. The adjustment can be carried out individually on each object within the range, while retaining the specified position of each object. Some adjustments can be carried out on the range of shapes “as a whole”, treating the entire selection as if it were a single object.

Possible Adjustments include:

  • Scale
  • To Size
  • Add Size (negative values may be used to reduce size)
  • Text (typeface, font size, bold, italic)
  • Flip
  • Add Rotation (negative numbers may be used here)
