    The Dimension Tool is now live with 28.1.0.141 version of Illustrator.


    This is just a beginning of it and the team is going to improve it further.

    The intention is not to replace the existing specialized plugins completely, but to give a robust and integrated way for the majority of users to create dimensions.


    Please make new requests and upvote existing ones, report bugs if you find them — all these are monitored and really help to shape the experience. Happy dimensioning!

    @breck sounds like you need a more advanced tool like CAD TOOLS by HotDoor
    hot door stopped responding and was to pricey so i went back to adobe asking just for a better measurement tool. this is now far better but still feel that CAD TOOLS is best for building out prints and detailed diagrams.

    @judy you can download them here and if you need to get the lic they sell you it at the current price https://www.hotdoor.com/Download?support i have used them for hears. its just i want only the dimension tool and not the rest. currently i made a 9slize with everything i need in it and than just unlink and edit the text. but the problem with this is if i change the object i need to take all the steps again. if illustrator had the tool it would even be better if it auto updated but at lease have it so i can redraw the measurement faster.

    CADtools 8 works with Illustrator CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS6 and CC
    CADtools 7 works with Illustrator CS3, CS4, and CS5

    @jean-michel-le-goff in the CC APP on the left hand side you will see beta apps!
    be sure to backup any work you open in the beta apps (do not over wright original content) i have experienced a loss when doing that.

    @Egor please work on performance over features. also talk to the team about cleaning up user voice. Items that have little or less than 1k votes are getting completed over items that have 3k+ votes?
    Performance is a problems that need to be fixed over more features.

    Just played with the BETA. that would work just would need an update tool but resetting the would not be that big of a deal. also should match the documents ruler so when i change dimensions from PX to IN it will update all the measurements.

    David: If only cad tools would be cheaper so everyone could afford it when i send them AI documents. or allow for them to edit them even if they do not have cad tools.
    it also does not work on the cloud share live edit. I would hope adobe would make simple measurement tools to not fridge on cad tools. or maybe cad tools offer a smaller package allowing single tools like astute. I would be open to 5-10 a month but 20 a month is too high for me. and all i need is measurement tools. i have created my own with 9slice and graphic styles and all i need to do is edit the number, but that is still a one by one option.

    i asked for Astute to create something basic like this.

    i was in a meeting with Saurav Agrawal and it feels like they are only into adding new features. they only want to try to hipe sales and relay do not care about there current users. i have been using adobe since i was 12 and now have a broken heart.
    with in my ranks they lost 140 people from using anything adobe. i am one of a fiew left. and there not lissening. when they lost pantone they shot there own foot. and now they have over $60k in equipment they can no longer use with adobe. they jumpted to afanity designer and now pay for pantone pro. but at the end of the year are going to stop using pantone. they have there own color system and no longer will need pantone. the volume of clients that need to pantone match are limited so they will just mail samples and the clients will have to choose. and now with not being able to use a simple tablet or my phone to open a document and make some edits or start creating and finish on my desktop is now a hertal from what it was 5 years ago

    there should be an option to convert them at least once. and let you know they were converted but there would be not option to go back to pantone's full catalog.
    i understand the limits but it was up to adobe to provide a transmission.

    UPDATE: its adobe's fault .... now $5k + in equipment now no longer usable with any adobe software. but corel and afinity are all ok.

    Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

    Starting with Beta 28.3.47 hyphenation is going to be turned off by default for all new documents, even if a user doesn't change the option manually for the basic paragraph style, as is mentioned in the previous status for this request. The status is going to be updated one last time when this finally lands into the main release. Again, thank to all who upvoted this for being active — and patient.

    last time i spoke with a dev team member this was going to be fixed ? and now years later still no fix. and this is more important https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/20423296-make-illustrator-multi-threaded-on-cpu please vote

    this is not done and also this is not the highest priority item! PLEASE work accordingly to this platform. stop adding features till bugs and workflow request are complete.
    im the only one left in my company using illustrator and photo shop. all others have left do to the platforms stability. yes we have now asked for this for years and you reply saying it will now be off by default and there was never any change. i feel like adobe Devs do not care about there real clients.

    David - Great example of Quark.
    I was on the phone with an adobe rep for illustrator and he did not seam to care about my complaints. He did not even know about user voice. I gave him a list of problems Him:"ill bring these complaints to my team". Me:"please let me know what you have". him"reading his list..." me"wow you skipped over 5 items that are the most important. please use user voice to take what is the most needed." him:"whats user voice" me facepalming. "the app adobe setup to take bugs and user requests". so my verdict of adobe is they no linger care. or hire people that do not do there jobs.

    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    Has i pointed out in a call with them back in 2018. at least have a core dedicated per project file. this way if i open more than one file it will not crash me when just doing a task has simple has copy and past. yes i have that experience still to this day. opening more than one file or having a menu brochure that has more than 600+ lines of text and Ai crashes form a copy and past. More ram helps but having Multi core support will be the best fix.

    i spoke with a rep from Photoshop and bridge and was supost to get a call about illustrator. i feel adobe dev teams are not lessening to there clients anymore. my team of 56 is now only 2 using illustrator the rest use corel. or inkscape. (most is just basic color changes or turning on and off layers.) but still that is a loss of 54 users. PLEASE ILLUSTRATOR TEAM FIX THIS

    In CC 2019 (latest update 23.0.1), at 100% Zoom 1inch artwork would display at 1inch in physical (Print) size, on any display. If this doesn’t work right for screen design workflows, please use the checkbox Preferences > General > Display Print Size at 100% Zoom, to turn off the feature. Currently this feature works only on primary display, and there are plans of extending this to other attached displays.
