aiAutomate objets replacement with a symbol !

With symbolReplacement, replace every object of a selection by a given symbol (Named 'Dot').
Then, you don't have to update 10, 20, 30 objects but only one symbol.


  1. Download and place the script in the Illustrator scripts 's folder.
  2. In your document, draw  the symbol you will use for replacement et name it VERY PRECISELY "Dot". 
  3. Select all the objects to modify and launch the script via File/Scripts/ (Other scripts/ if you didn't save the script in the Illustrator script folder) SymbolRemplacement.

All the the selected objects were instantly replaced by the symbol.
