Yeah, there are still some useful things missing, but this script may be overkill now that most of its functionality has been absorbed by AS. The arrow keys allow you to move one or more selected shapes up & down in the stack order, and pushing multiple shapes to the top or bottom does bring them together.Greenlaw wrote:Does it allow you to arbitrarily shift selected shapes to any position in the stacking order in a layer? If so, I must have missed that in the docs. Is it a key command? If it's something as simple as (modifier key)-Up or -Down, I can really use right now.
Some stuff I'm almost certain 10.1 doesn't do that this script did in 9.5:
1. I liked being able to bring together multiple selected shapes with a single mouse click. This made it easier to manage and organize complex layers that contained many dozens of shapes. I don't think 10.1 does that but I could be wrong.
2. How about applying the style of the bottom shape to all selected shapes? That was a cool feature.
3. One other thing I really appreciated about the script was the numerical display that showed you the stacking order number of a selected shape. The UI allowed you to drag that position number up and down much more conveniently than the limited menu commands in 9.5 (which as far as I can tell hasn't changed in 10.1.)
AS still has the same push and pull styles modifiers but now with multiple shapes, so yes, you can simply click a shape with the right modifier to have its style propagated to all selected shapes.
No numeric display of stack order though, which is why almost every select shape mod has one. The point is that smaller features like this can now be added without trying to do things AS now does natively. But I never bought Rudigers script myself (I didn't want to be tempted to borrow any of his methods, seeing as he was selling it), so I can't update it, but the details are above. It's pretty simple search and replace.
