    As a company outputting huge banners and wraps, scale is an issue. Our output software is 1:1. We must upscale before the RIP. If a piece is scaled wrong from the client, it can add days to production. A simple change would not need a workflow workaround. That is time. Time is money. File size is not an issue really anymore. Give me a 1:1 large file any day. Banners should not need more than a 200dpi photo anyway. Ive seen 100dpi photos come out great on large files. And most photos look like **** re-rendered above twice the native dpi. So link the file, and send the package. Increasing the canvas size makes me less likely to buy a competitors product that has a scale option. I should not have to break out a calculator when designing a graphic. Which I do now often. It sucks. And before you say get better at math, I'm talking about this bracket is 3.375" from the left and 4.788"w by 2.7933"h and my scale is 1"=3". Instead of just typing those numbers I now have to figure each out, or make it an transform it by 33.333%. Time is money. reaching for a calculator (which always disappears) is also problematic

    The reason eps files are still around is you cannot place .ai flies in word, or print in many machines. Shops like mine use 150,000 printers they bought 10 years ago because they are work horses. The software used to run them won’t rip ai files. Some of our files are 20 years old and eps.
    Mostly we keep eps around because it’s use outside of illustrator

    What I am saying, create a file and make a black square 1”x1”. Now save it. Now make it 220”. Save that. 2 file sizes. Now save as a eps both ways or pdf.

    Infinite canvas means HUGE file sizes. But a simple scale tool retains file size

    I am tired of paying Cadtools $250 for what should be default adobe functions.

    I have been requesting this for years. either increase the canvas size or allow scaling.

    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.

    The "callout" tools (like cad tools for illustrator) are needed because we often have to submit scaled permit application drawings. It would be problematic to go from app to app and back again.
