I would like to have a new tool: a kind of semi-elastic placement aid. Our team designs packagings and often has to adapt layouts to new die cuts, so objects often have to be moved, but must not change in size themselves. Sometimes a logo exists in three different sizes, which must be chosen depending on the total height. In addition, they must adhere to minimum distances, which may also not be scaled. However, the design often follows a grid, e.g. a logo must be on the vertical at 5/13 of the total height. So I imagine a kind of grid that, when scaled, adheres to a set of rules. With options if and how as well as how far something is scaled or not.
Although this is all logical and mathematical, we currently have to create it manually. A new "magic grid" would be a great help here.
I look forward to feedback and ideas,
Stefan, can this solution help your team?
This is not exactly what you want, but it’s free and it’s there.
Some report it doesn’t get launch on Macs... I suppose you can address the developer if the tool suits you.
Please comment back.
This feels like a job for a layout or web front-end app. Next step would be 'now gimme the code of it' and we get Frontpage :)
However, you ask for a thing like this and give no examples.
