Edits associative array objects and their source objects.
Modify associative arrays by editing the array properties, editing source objects, or replacing items with other objects.
When you select and edit a single array object, the Array Editor ribbon contextual tab is displayed. The array properties available on the Array Editor ribbon contextual tab depend on the type of the selected array.
The following prompt is displayed.
Selects an array for editing. The type of array you select (rectangular, path, or polar) determines the remaining prompts.
Activates an editing state in which you can update the associative array by editing one of its items.
Replaces the source objects for selected items or for all items referencing the original source objects.
Select the new source objects.
Specifies a base point for positioning each replacement object.
Specifies an array item to replace, and continues to prompt for additional items.
Redefines the base point of the array. Path arrays are repositioned relative to the new base point.
Specifies a base point for positioning the objects in the array.
For associative arrays, specifies a valid constraint (or key point) on the source objects to use as the base point. If you edit the source objects of the resulting array, the base point of the array remains coincident with the key point of the source objects.
Specifies the number and spacing of rows, and the incrementing elevation between them.
Derives a value using a mathematical formula or equation.
Specifies the total distance between the first and last rows.
Specifies the number and spacing of columns.
Specifies the distance between columns.
Derives a value using a mathematical formula or equation.
Specifies the total distance between the first and last columns.
Specifies the number and spacing of levels (for 3D arrays).
Derives a value using a mathematical formula or equation.
Specifies the total distance between the first and last levels.
Controls how to distribute items along the path.
For path arrays whose Method property is set to Measure, you are prompted to redefine the distribution method (Divide, Total, Expression).
Specifies whether to align each item to be tangent to the path direction. Alignment is relative to the orientation of the first item.
Specifies whether to maintain the original Z direction or to naturally bank the items along a 3D path.
Specifies the angle between items using a value or expression.
Specifies the angle between the first and last item in the array using a value or expression.
Controls whether items are rotated as they are arrayed.
Restores erased items and removes any item overrides.
Exits the command.
