    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

    I completely agree with the last comment from Bruce, dimension tools should be BUILT INTO Illustrator as standard, we shouldn't have to pay for external plugins!!
    When will Adobe wake up and take note, it cannot be that difficult to implement surely?

    As I have mentioned previously, just take a look at HotDoor CADTools, this covers what is needed from my point of view. We need to add dimensions to all the label proofs, including curves, angles, etc.

    A simplified version of the third-party software Hotdoor CADTools would be a great addition to Illustrator. When creating label proofs we need to show the label dimensions, having to add them manually is slow and time consuming.

    When creating emboss dies for label printing we need to know the area of the emboss on the label as the embossing units have maximum area they can emboss in one hit. This calculation (without using a third party script) would be very useful.
