    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 work for a very large Grocery co-op, and I manage the branding and decor for the stores. I deal with a lot of different media, materials and vendors ranging from interior sign design, digital content, exterior signs, displays and promotional material.
    When spec'ing, bidding or manufacturing/fabricating, it is EXTREMELY important to supply measurements and dimensions. I also work in CAD. Which as we all know, you can click on 2 points and a dimension line shows up, showing the distance or length between 2 points or object. It is a simple tool and a simple function. YES, there are multiple plugins. I use a script called SPECIFY. BUT if there is a plug in, there is a way to create a function within the program.......Right?
    Today's world is much faster pace and more digitally functional than the days of old, When PROOFS were gold....Today, I need to send a file and it needs to be produced within hours. It would be very helpful to be incorporate a dimensioning tool. AS EVERY ONE else in this thread has asked, and I have seen this request for YEARS!!!!!!!
    Much the same as 'leaders' that would be equally as helpful in specifying colors, and material callouts, for
    various purposes during the design phase. ADOBE DEVELOPERS.....PLEASE TAKE THIS REQUEST SERIOUSLY....IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS GREATLY NEEDED.

    THIS INITIAL THREAD WAS FROM 2017........and we are still asking.......3 years later......so the need is obviously not going away!
