Hi

I can't find the Dimension Tool form the toolbar in Illustrator Beta 28.0

Do I need to add it to the toolbar? Or am I being blind?

Thanks

Hello @Lindley01924 @hekselsior @FongChiLok0201 @Martin Abe,

 

I understand your concern regarding the missing Dimension Tool in Adobe Illustrator Beta Version 28.0.32 and later. I'd like to provide some clarity on this matter.

 

The Dimension Tool has been temporarily removed from Illustrator Beta Version 28.0.40. The reason for this removal is that our development team is actively working on core enhancements and improvements to this feature.

 

Rest assured, the Dimension Tool will be reintrod

It's pretty usual for beta software that functionality goes on and off.

If it's not there when you switch to the Advanced toolbar, then it's currently not there.

Yes, it's gone missing in this version (28.0). I reverted it to version 27.8.1, and the Dimension tool is back.

Hello @FongChiLok0201,

 

Would you mind trying the suggestions shared in this help article (https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html) to install an older version of Illustrator and let us know if it helps?

 

Thanks,

Just go to Adobe Creative Cloud app, and you will see list of apps that can be installed. Uninstall the 28.0 version, and then install the 27 version.

Ya, you have to go back to the 27. beta. I hope it becomes a regular feature. It's very much like the CADdoor extension. I do a lot of mockups for displays and signage and always have to dimension everything. So this becoming an in-house feature is very long awaited.

Thank you for your understanding, and stay tuned for updates on this feature's return.

Hi @rudy0101,

 

The Dimension tool is still available in the general release version of Illustrator, currently at version 28.1, and the latest beta, v28.3.10.

 

I hope this helps, and feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns!

 

Best,

Anshul Saini

Hi Adobe world,

Had to reinstall Illustrator to enable “my new fave” tool.

Perfect timing, much appreciated.
