    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    Please share your thoughts on the following:

    1. Would it make sense to have a separate desktop app, just to create charts, and bring them inside Illustrator or InDesign? It may not be on cloud.

    2. Or would you rather have us work on building it within Illustrator?

    Thanks
    Yogesh

    If you used the Microsoft Graph tool, you never realize you are using an external tool; it feels like it's part of the program you are in.

    So, not a separate tool so much as a call-out to the same component in AI and ID.

    I posted this years ago at this point, but I think it is worth repeating.

    I like the Microsoft method for a graphing tool. For all practicable purposes, it appears to be built into each program but it's actually a separate "plugin" that all the Office programs can access.

    I like the idea of being able to create a graph right in the program I'm in, such as InDesign, Illustrator, Captivate, etc.

    RE: One Charts
    First, it's only "free" during the beta stage, but will have a credit-purchase system when released.
    Second, it exports out as a PNG, URL, and (I believe) iFrame code. I couldn't find anything on the PNG pixel dimensions, so I don't know if it would be suitable for print. (Plus, print would require additional manipulation to prevent RGB black printing in CMYK.)
    Third, as far as PNG is concerned, I'm not sure how it would be that different from using Excel and exporting the chart.

    Please let me know if I got anything work as I only looked at their website.

    1. A separate app that can work with various Adobe apps, including Illustrator and InDesign. Similar in nature to the Charts app in Microsoft Office apps.

    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.

    @Jody Roberts--If you are referring to Hotdoor CADtools, they have old installers on their website.

    @Bradley I don't think I made myself clear--sorry. If Adobe purchased the rights to CADtools, it would simply become part of Illustrator just like Teacup Software's Table plugin simply became part of InDesign. There would not be an extra fee beyond what the Creative Cloud costs. Of course, older versions of Illustrator would see the static objects but older versions would break any of the CAD editing features.

    I would hope Adobe would purchase CADTools, not put them out of business! Hotdoor is a small mom-and-pop business. Adobe has purchased plugins (or at least the technology) in the past with InDesign's Table and Cell Styles from TeaCup Software.

    One never knows what features they plan to add. Hope springs eternal...

    Because this feature has been requested for years now (decades!), it has to be a deliberate omission by Adobe. I feel there are two possible reasons: 1] it's too complicated for the programmers, or 2] it's not part of the Adobe road map. I doubt it's the former reason. I think that Adobe sees Illustrator as mainly an "art" program. Why else would it not have auto-dimensioning (like CorelDRAW), flow chart features (like Office apps or CorelDRAW), and modern charting functions (like Excel) after all this time?

    I believe CC Libraries was added in CC 2018. I assume by "cloud-based version" you mean when the CC subscription started--AFAIK, there is no cloud version.

    As a work-around, you can add objects filled with gradients to the CC Library. Then right-click to Place a Copy. The gradients will be added to the Swatches.

    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.
