    We have done further updates to Dimension tool with recently released version - 28.3


    You can create and use your custom scale for dimension, hide or show units on dimensions and dimensions are now sticky to the object - they transform as well when you transform the object.

    Very basic CAD tools built in to illustrator would make Illustrator even more amazing. Tools such as the ability to change the dimension of simple shapes (length of line, radius/diameter of a circle, etc) after it has been drawn and then the ability to constrain it. Also, placing automatic dimensions (linear and angular) and measuring would be sweet tools. Sometimes I need my shape or lines to be a certain length or constrained to a certain angle and I have no way of doing this easily at the moment from within illustrator. Currently, I'm importing a dxf file from CAD software and it still gets hosed up. It's time consuming and I'm ripping my hair out trying to fix things that didn't translate well. Thank you for the consideration!
