Dimensioning tool

Recommended Posts

As IndustrialDesigner I use AI in combination with the plugin hot door CADtools. I primarily use the dimensioning function in presentation and explanation drawings.In conjunction with the Mac 64bit conversion and Adobe's licensing policy, I would like to switch to Affinity Designer. The missing dimensioning tool prevents me from switching (The switch to Affinity Photo I have already made). The dimensioning functionality of Canvas Draw would be sufficient for the first step.. Is there any hope?

I see this discussion has been going on for four years. Without any comment from Serif. It looks like I have to bury my hopes. Unfortunately, the product name is misleading. From my point of view, design goes beyond the creation of illustrations. Adobe is more precise at this point

I suppose it's possible that the next version of Designer - after the version currently in beta - could come with dimensioning tools, you never know.
At the same time, there's also a chance that Serif don't want Designer to get too much like a CAD application, or whatever.
All we can do is request new features and see what happens.
I'm sure the team knows what they're doing and, just as importantly, why they do some things and not others. They are, after all, the experts in what they do.
