I did it the same way as Linda and then pressed Enter the same as Sheryl.

You have to do it those steps to get it to work.

As  you can see there are different solutions. Could these steps be saved as "fix it" and posted in AD Help? Not sure why  it is, as we all have the same AD program. Thanks to everyone who help with this problem.

The trick to using that CRTL J is to have everything set up and ready, then do the CTRL J and don't do anything else after that but keep hitting the CTRL J.  I do it the same way as Sheryl.  You can't click anything with your mouse before doing the CTRL J or it won't work.

Teejay, that number isn't the number of petals you want, that's degree to rotate each petal to get the number you want.   It's all math.  If you want only 12 leaves, then you divide 360 by 12 which is 30 so you would set it at 30%.  If you don't want a specific number of leaves, it will use the value from the first rotation for all the rest.  That's a pretty nice little feature!

I have trouble with CTRL J  because they are so far apart on the keyboard!!  I have to let loose of the mouse and use two hands.

Great stuff sheryl

ML.  The man in the flower tut video said we wanted 18 petals
He then put in the rotation box.   360/18

And when he hit the ctrl j  it automatically  wrote the 20 degrees
He didnt put the 20 in ..... ad worked it out

now I think this is magic... for me anyway....sometimes I have 9 fingers and 11 toes
I just tried it again...I put in 360/ 7
 I got  7 petals and ad worked it out all that hard boring stuff called maths.....  pure    magic. :jumper:

Ahhh!!!   I see, said the blind woman!!!  I think at that point I was just listening instead of watching and didn't notice that he typed the math right into the box!!  That is nothing but BRILLIANT!!!!  I just tried it on several images and it works perfectly!!!  Thanks for setting that one straight.   One can do it either way but this way i so much faster!!  I think I could play with this all day long!!! :yes01: :yes01: :yes01:
