If only I knew somebody… ;)

I don't know how much time the scripting would have saved though. After the effort to script it, I'd still have to id the graphic, and choose the appropriate offset.

Really, in this case I never felt like it was slowing me down. By choosing from my button matrix, I only spent a few seconds getting each button placed.

As with everything Adobe, there's always a few different ways to get back home!

Richard mentioned Auto-Text…perhaps I'll check on that if/when I run across that scenario again.

One could certainly create a plugin or Frame/ExtendScript that would simplify that process. Before doing something "eleventh-six hundred times" I'd look for some type of automation.  :)

Sounds like an "Insert Icon" command is needed here. Run command (press shortcut keys), prompt for file .. Done! The anchoring type and offsets could all be pre set.
