A couple of questions on this:
1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.
2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?
Please share more details about your workflow.

In the sign industry we use Illustrator to Visualize the project as well as manufacture from the drawings. Dimensions are paramount. When in the field doing a survey, we simply use a object of know length to give us our scale. Bring it the photo into illustrator scale it and start pulling dimensions. Cad Tools has worked OK. But the last renewal update was the final nail in it's coffin for us. We have not made any updates to Illustrator as our version of CadTools will not work. We have versions 7,8,9. I refuse to give them anymore $$ for something that should me built into a suite of products that I already Pay $149.00 a month for (3) users. Come on Adobe... make this happen.Matt supported this idea ·
