I've enabled the Oscurart tools add on through Preferences and can see/right click to access the list of its functions/options. Its "Remove modifiers" function works, but I can't seem to get the "distribute objects" functionality to make any changes whatsoever to a selection of multiple objects to get them to align along a selected axis as defined in its "distribute Objects" option.
enter image description here enter image description here

To repro: Turn Oscurart on in Add on via Preferences. Create 3 simple cubes -- each as separate objects. Select them all while in Object mode. Then choose the Distribute objects option in Oscurart. I expect the 3 cubes to align to the selected axis in the Distribute Objects dialog box, but nothing seems to be happening.

Nothing I change in the axis options does anything to align/distribute the selected objects along the chosen axis's (reminder this is in Blender v2.8)

Is there a problem with the add on? Thanks!


  • $\begingroup$ Hello. The distribution still works in 2.8. Could you please attach a screenshot of your 3D viewport, with the cubes you need to distribute? Oscurart tools is kinda sensitive about selecting objects the right way. $\endgroup$ – ᴊᴀᴄʜʏᴍ ᴍɪᴄʜᴀʟ Oct 29 '19 at 9:17
  • $\begingroup$ Added my screen (hope that's what you wanted). I have not even got it to work in a clean project, with just 3 simple cubes duplicated from the default that were moved around a bit to get them all out of alignment. What is the "sensitivity" about selection that you mention? What I did was in Object mode to simply select either one after another in a row, and in another test, the 2 end ones first then the one in the center, but nothing seems to work. Thanks for the help. $\endgroup$ – Mark777 Oct 29 '19 at 23:41
