    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.

    I think what a lot of users here are trying to say is this: in the sign and printing industries, a lot of customers are designing their parts in Illustrator or another vector graphics software, and send their designs as vector graphics files (often *.ai or *pdf). In my company, we produce circuits that could end up being used for medical devices or military equipment, so repeatedly exporting data or re-drawing between programs can lead to more mistakes.

    I can't say that these others do things the same way, but at my company, we export objects to an AutoCAD dwg, apply dimensions, then re-import them to Illustrator. Our alternative is to draw dimensions manually, following a template. If we had the option to insert dimensions based on the files current units, many users would be glad that they don't need to use a work-around.
