Here we go, the first Beta version with the Dimension tool. Still very basic, but more features are to come. Please try the Beta 27.7 (available in the Beta section in your Creative Cloud Desktop application), test the tool and give the team your feedback here in comments. and refer to roadmap to see what will be added later.

Having a dimensioning tool available as standard in Illustrator would save me soooo much time!! It needs to have similar functionality as CADtools. I've been designing signs for 20 years and have been wishing this existed in Illustrator the whole time.
Oh, and eliminating the size max for the canvas would also be a HUGE improvement.... or at least increase the size. Please :)Marc Lawrence supported this idea ·
The ability to set multiple scales within the same document would be ideal. I know CadTools allows this by allowing a scale to be set per layer. I found this to be really cumbersome because I don't typically use layers in Illustrator and also do a lot of copying and pasting within the document. I would suggest being able to set a scale on a group. This would allow for a much more efficient workflow. For example, I could have an elevation of a sign design at 1"=1' scale and on the same artboard I could also create a detail drawing of a different scale by creating a group and setting a different scale.
