Measure and plot dimensions effortlessly

Effortlessly measure and show dimensions in your design using the Dimension tool. This tool simplifies measurement, whether it's distances, angles, or radii. When resizing an object, all linked dimensions adapt automatically. You may also personalize the dimension's appearance, units, and scale. Delve deeper into the capabilities of the Dimension tool.


Experience an enhanced Retype workflow

Retype now features distinct Match Font and Edit Text features. Match Font effortlessly recognizes text in images and outlined text, offering matching fonts. If the text isn't recognized, you can move the marquee to encompass the text and find its matching fonts. With Edit Text, you can modify text in images and outlined text using a matching font. Explore more about the Retype tool's enhanced capabilities.

Please make the most easy switch we all have been waiting for for so long:

Make "Export Artboard" / "Use artboard" the default!

 

The most useless move I've been making for so many years.

There is no File > Export Artboard.

There is File > Export > Export for Screens... and > Export As...

Export As has the Use Artboards option

Export for Screens has already the default you want

Hej Adobe! 

Możecie spróbować polepszyć wydajność tworzenia wzoru, Dobrze by było gdyby wzór który tworzysz można było lepszy sposób edytować i blokować i odblokowywać. Ponieważ gdy tworzysz wzór  i chcerz go zablować żeby się nie przesuwał musisz go całkowice rasteryzować, przez co nie możesz już go edytować. Proszę popracujcie nad tym.

Create a better pattern editor, one that will allow you to always return to the pattern, even if it is locked you will be able to edit it later. Because now when you need to lock a pattern in a given object, you can no longer edit it later.

Just double click the pattern in the swatches panel to edit it. Does that not work for you?

In my opinion, giving a pattern to samples is too difficult, it would be good if there was a better way of writing the pattern. Or a more readable panel.

What is the workflow you are having problems with?

The AI generated patterns? They can be edited, but it needs some working around.

Hello. Update Version 28.3 was recently installed in my Mac Air. It negatively affected my screen refresh when scrolling or zooming in and out of my Illustrator documents (blurry text, missing sections or artifacts). I had to zoom in and out everytime to refresh to crisp text and graphics. I uninstalled and reverted to v.28.2. That solved the problem.
