    This used to be easy to do not too long ago, maybe CS2 or so, but they broke it at some point and have never fixed it. It's quite a statement on where Adobe's attention to customer satisfaction is when this is in the top 10 non-completed user submitted requests and is 3 years old without any follow-up....

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    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.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

    Requiring overly detailed explanations allows them to push the can down the road. There are numerous plugins that have been referenced, dozens of other applications in the market (that haven't been around nearly as long as Illustrator) with these tools, and plenty of responses spelling out what the basic functionality could/should look like.
    There are already measuring tools inside Illustrator which will show length and angle, they just need to organize a new interface to display that information as an overlay. It would be incredible if they were able to incorporate more parametric functionality, but let's start crawling before trying to run a marathon...
    Also, claiming AI isn't a technical drawing software and scripts are the answer is about the most short-sighted response I can imagine. Why add any new features if there are scripts out there you can learn to write yourself‽ (Just keep paying Adobe and spending your valuable time learning script languages instead of being a designer or illustrator, etc...)

    I've posted a link to the video below. Hopefully, this will demonstrate the issue I'm having when tabbing between input fields in the Transform Palette.
