Developer's Description

SnapMeasure is a plug-in tool for Adobe Illustrator which addresses several weaknesses of the built-in measuring tool and will tremendously improve your productivity:

  • It clearly snaps with visual feedback to elements on the page (no more measuring three and four times to be sure you are getting the right value!)
  • It can put the measurement values right where your eyes are -- next to the cursor. No more having to look up at the Info palette.
  • It lets you scroll or zoom during a measure (no need to make sure the start and end points are both on the screen before you start measuring).
  • It lets you change the color of the measure line, for better visibility on certain backgrounds.
  • It can optionally set and reset the constrain angle and cursor key distance without having to open the preferences window.
  • It can measure the radii of curvature and tangent angles of Bezier curves
  • It can measure distance along the path
  • It can measure at a user-defined scale, from 1:1,000,000 to 1,000,000:1, with selectable units
  • It can convert measures to Illustrator art, for permanent reference

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.01

  • Now fully compatible with Illustrator CS5 on both platforms
  • Improvement: With Smart Guides off, the snap radius for anchor points and handles now matches the value set in Illustrator Preferences > Selection & Anchor Display > Selection > Tolerance
  • Bug fix: Measurements are correctly converted to artwork when the SnapMeasure layer is hidden
