How to automate setting position and dimensions to round values?

I’m trying to set the position and size of selected objects in Illustrator to whole numbers quickly.

Is there an Action or Script that does that already?

If so, where can I find that?

Otherwise, what would be the fastest workflow?

(So far I’m tabbing through the Transform Panel and manually rounding and iterating through elements, which is slow)

Answer

Next time you could set up a grid and let the artboard and all objects snap to it.

  • To use the grid, choose View > Show Grid.
  • To hide the grid, choose View > Hide Grid.
  • To snap objects to gridlines, choose View > Snap To Grid,
    (Note: When the View > Pixel Preview option is selected, Snap To Grid
    changes to Snap To Pixel.)

  • To specify the spacing between gridlines, choose Edit > Preferences >
    Guides & Grid (Windows)
    or Illustrator > Preferences > Guides & Grid
    (Mac OS).
