How can I move multiple objects towards a central point in Illustrator?


Question

I want to move a set of objects towards a central point. Think moving objects that are outlining a circle towards the middle. I know you can do this through the bounding box, but that results in the objects being resized and I don't want them resized.

The effect that I have in mind is like the Symbol Scruncher tool except that I want to move the objects at a specific distance.

I also won't be able to use the Scruncher because I didn't spray my symbols randomly.

If you wish to move a group of all objects to a center pint, without resizing them, you'll have to do it manually or in specific groups (left, top objects - right, bottom objects, etc).

There is no method to concentrate objects around a given point without resizing.

Scripting may be able to do this. But I'm not certain.
