    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

    I'm a graphic designer that's in sign industry and just switched from corel to illustrator. I use this script https://o2creative.co.nz/shop/Powerscripts/Add_Dimensions_PowerScript_for_Adobe_Illustrator (it's better compare to https://specees.dazed.design/ and https://adamdehaven.com/blog/dimension-adobe-illustrator-designs-with-a-simple-script/) to work around the inconvenience and I have to admit it's quite faster than corel's dimension tool. The only thing I'd add to this is the option of having both inch and foot together instead of either one of those. Also it'd be great if this is live editing that would automatically changes with the object size

    I'm not trying to turn Illustrator into Corel Draw, but Corel definitely has some advantage that we could learn from.
