    I have to create some datalines that will need to follow a path.

    I have a shape layer and within that I have separate paths with different colour stroke for each trimmed path. (see attached screen grab)

    What I need to be able to do is move all the paths at once save having to move each one individual to follow the shape I need. Or if there’s a better way to create multiple trimmed paths on one path if that makes sense?
