converting a dashed line into multiple lines in illustrator

I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to take a dashed line and quickly turn it into multiple lines, retaining its dash pattern. Maybe I need to get into some kind of scripting? If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks.

Answer

There is a extetendScript that can do this effortlessly and precise: breakDashes.jsx

If you take five minutes to learn where to paste scripts into the right folder and then inside Illustrator go to File → Scripts → BreakDashes

You might also need to sign up to GitHub too in order to download the file.
