    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.

    It looks like what you've got so far is a tool that describes the dimensions of the selected object, by generating line and text objects as entities in the page. Looking at the details of this feature request it looks like that may have been all OP asked for, but what I had intended to voice support for was a feature that would allow me to establish a dimension as a defined entity, then change that number to enforce a change in the shape of the design, which would propagate out through other elements that are defined relative to that initial one. I'm looking for this because I find these tools really useful in CAD software, but it often feels silly to be using tools like Fusion360 for things like graphic design, which lack many of the other features Illustrator is designed for.

    Is this a direction that this tool is going to move towards, or should I expect that continued development of the dimension tool is going to remain strictly functional for automatically generating graphics describing the already prescribed dimensions of the art on the page?
