That's great Michael, thanks!! B)


You're very welcome, François. I think if people take the time to look at these plug-ins, they'll see how well-conceived and useful they can be. My personal favorites are Match Paths, Thematic Diagrams, and Pattern Creation.

Thank you for posting and translating

I've compiled all that I've been able to learn about the Illustrator plug-ins in a MS Word document (attached). It includes detailed descriptions about what 23 of the tools do and how to use them. There are a handful of others that I either haven't been able to figure out or didn't have the time to look at, so if anyone can add to or improve the descriptions, it would be greatly appreciated.

I've also attached a PDF worksheet so you can see how some of the plug-ins work -- open it in Illustrator to try the tools out for yourself. The website of the Institute of Cartography has a number of real-world examples with matching Illustrator files.

Special thanks to ebentley for her translation help.
