Wave Layout

1. General
  • You can arrange layers and layer groups.

  • Be careful, layer groups need to be activated by holding down Cmd/Ctrl. If you select while holding Shift all the sublayers will be selected, too.

2. Wave Length (Period)
  • The size of a single wave cycle until it repeats.

3. Wave Height (Amplitude)
  • Amplitude is the height above and below a zero line (reference line). If the amplitude is set to 50 the height of the complete wave will be 100 (from -50 to 50).

  • If you need a complete wave height of  200 than you have to set the amplitude to 100 (half the height).

4. Distance
  • Distance between the center points of each art object.

5. Start Angle
  • Start Angle defines at which point the first art object is positioned. Accordingly all other art objects will be set.

  • The best way to watch its effect is to press the up arrow for a longer period. The value will increment and you can watch the arrangement.

6. Position
  • Define the position at which the layout patterns should start.

7. Random Order
  • With this option the order of objects will be randomized.

  • If you uncheck it then it will reset to your default order defined by layers.

  • Note: The new random order is just „virtual“. This real order in layers is not changed.
