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.

You're missing the point. We already have CadTools, and yes, it's OK at serving our needs. But considering the amount of money we give to Adobe every year to pay for the Creative Cloud, surly they could include notes and dimensioning in the base product, instead of all these other tools Adobe develops that we don't use.
We can't use Illustrator to get our work done without CadTools, and it shouldn't be that way. If Adobe needs to buy out HotDoor, then they should do that. If HotDoor won't sell, then put them out of business by writing the code yourself.
This has been going on for years, and I can't figure out why Adobe has not included this tool, unless they are somehow profiting off of the HotDoor Cadtools somehow.
And every time there is a new update for Illustrator CC, Adobe directly emails our end users, they run out and install the new version because they think there will be something useful included, and all it does is break CadTools, which they actually need.
Adobe, listen to your end users and give us the tools we need to do our work.
Look at ANY cad software that offers dimensioning, and those are the tools you need in Illustrator (AutoCAD, SketchUp, Revit, etc). As long as everyone in this forum is so quick to suggest CADtools, how about starting with just mimicking those tools inside Illustrator? Why keep developing other tools each year that no one asked for, and ignore the thing that has been demanded for 10 years now? If you can't do that, just buy HotDoor. You have all the money. --- "Adobe achieved record annual revenue of $11.17 billion in fiscal year 2019, representing 24 percent year-over-year growth."
