The Transform Each command allows you to transform multiple objects relative to their individual reference points instead of a single reference point. With the Transform Each command, you can scale or move objects horizontally or vertically, rotate objects by a specific angle, and create a mirror reflection of the objects. If you want to create a unique effect, you can also have Illustrator apply random transformations. You can also use the Transform Effect command to create similar effects, which you can modify.

Use the Transform Each Command

1. Select the Selection tool on the Tools panel.

2. Select one or more objects to transform.

3. Click the Object menu, point to Transform, and then click Transform Each.

4. Select the Preview check box to view your changes on the selected object.

5. Do any of the following:

  • Scale Horizontal or Vertical. Drag the slider or enter a percentage to scale objects from their reference point.

  • Move Horizontal or Vertical. Drag the slider or enter a percentage to move objects left or right and up or down.

  • Rotate Angle. Enter a rotate angle or drag the dial.

  • Reflect X or Y. Select to create a mirror reflection of the objects.

  • Reference Point. Click a square to change the reference point.

  • Random. Select to apply random transformations using the values in the dialog box.

6. Click OK or Copy (creates a copy and applies the transformation).
