Step and repeat for offset path - Illustrator


In Adobe Illustrator, is there a workaround to easily repeat the process of offsetting a path? Just as you can input the number of desired steps using the blend tool, is there a similar option for the offset path command? I am also wondering why it isn’t possible to constrain proportions when using the blend tool with irregular shapes…

You can create an action (Window -> Actions) for this.

  1. Create New Action and name it
  2. Select shape and go to Object -> Path -> Offset Path and input the amount you want.
  3. Stop the action

Now just hit the play button to re-use that offset.
