    A wonderful addition to my Illustrator toolkit.

    This plug-in is deceptively powerful. When I started using MirrorMe, I was making patterns – but there is so much more there. Now I’m using it every single day at work to enhance my workflow in ways that used to frustrate me. Combined with VectorScribe and InkScribe, MirrorMe is destroying my deadlines. I look back on my work 2 years ago and laugh at how long it took. This tool makes all the other ones even faster.

    This is EPIC guys! I might end up using this everyday. I’m so glad you’re keeping Illustrator updated for all of us, haha!

    It’s saving me more time—I now often only draw one half of an object, while MirrorMe automatically creates the other half. Then I turn off MirrorMe and gently edit the paths with InkScribe, WidthScribe, etc., if I want to remove the appearance of automation. That’s still a lot faster than drawing the entire object without MirrorMe’s assistance. I can’t imagine working without it! It was when I decided to try it as a regular drawing tool that I discovered it spared me often the time of trying to get an entire object drawn, making the tool more of a part of a vector workflow than I expected

    One of Adobe Illustrator’s more frustrating tasks is reflecting objects, something even InDesign does with aplomb. With MirrorMe this clunky task becomes not only easy but fun. Once again, AG has created another powerful tool I’d be unhappy to live without.

    When I first started using this tool it amazed me. It took a lot of work and automated it saving hours upon hours of work. Problems only started to happen after using gradients and the masking transparency options. I’m not sure what behind the scene calculations are at work, but after making changes and updating the scene a couple times the file size ballooned. What would’ve taken me many hours to do before took only 2 hours, but in return it increased my filesize to over 160 megabytes. I couldn’t believe it so i mimicked the condition with a simple scene and just moved the object mirror around a couple times and updated the scene with each move. After about 10 updates it saved what would normally be a 1 megabyte file turned into an 80 megabyte files. This plugin is amazing for what it does, but until it is fully optimized limit how many times you update your scene, otherwise the filesize will blow up and eventually not load. What would make this plugin perfect would be if there was a way to dump old file information, if not the file will just keep getting bigger.

      Hi Jeremy – this is an interesting point. You are correct that our tools can vastly increase artwork file sizes with only a few clicks. Even though all our plug-ins are at pains to construct objects in a standard Illustrator manner, by allowing users to work so quickly, it also results in a vast amount of graphic work being created/placed in an instant. If you were to do many of these tool’s operations by hand, it would take days and you rightly expect file size to be proportional.

      In the office we’ve now hit a “real world” workflow file size in excess of 2Gb. Normally I would consider this completely unacceptable, but when I started to examine the detail and contents, I realised it was actually justified for that situation. Amazingly, Illustrator coped with it easily (Retina iMac).

      However, I believe every user should have a good idea of what an acceptable file size is for the environment/workflow in which they are working. To help with this, please refer to our very popular blog post 9 Ways to Minimize File Size in Adobe Illustrator
