Use the Spray Tool to spray out copies of a selected object to form a rectangular grid. This is very useful if you want to quickly populate a page (or a group box, group button, or tab pane) with a number of identical objects. You can spray out a grid from any type of object on a page.
  1. Select the Spray Tool in the Toolbar.

  2. Move the Spray Tool over the object you want to duplicate.
  3. Click and drag diagonally to spray out a rectangular grid of identical objects. 
    Click and drag
  4. Release the selection when the grid is the size you want.

Shortcut: You can reposition the entire grid on the page while all of its objects are still selected.

Note: If you have assigned properties to the object (content, symbol, style, actions, etc.), the object’s properties will be duplicated when you create the grid of objects.
