    This is gold! It’ll make detailing and creation efforts precise now rather than zooming in and eyeballing it. I’ve dreamed on this type of behavior when building out a logo!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Maaan. This is awesome! I’m always having to zoom and nitpick over my touching tangents. I can see several instances over the last year where I could’ve used the Rotate-to-Tangent subtool to execute some tricky placements that my keyboard increments kept messing up. I can also see a lot of use in making patterns with this tool.

    Wow… Just Wow. Love it.

    To all my graphic designer friends. If you use Illustrator on a regular basis, you MUST check out the new plugins from Astute Graphics. They are WidthScribe and ColliderScribe. It will change how you use Illustrator! These tools will make you say one of two, if not both of these statements, damn! I always wondered why this was missing in Illustrator!, or “Wow! I can think of a million things to do with this!” All of the plugins they offer are WELL worth the money just in the amount of time they save, not to mention the creative avenues it opens up! I have purchased all but one of their plugins and am glad I did!

    Check out @astutegraphics awesome plugins for Illustrator. A brilliant set of time-savers and creative tools.

    This is an awesome tool. I’ve wanted to be able to do that on many occasions. Imagine making a checkerboard with that!

    This is amazing!!

    Space fill is a masterpiece of a plugin tool for Illustrator. It is great for all kinds of path creation such as textures, type effects, overlays, distress and much more. The other tools are also pretty wow as well. Use it every day.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    The Illustrator staff should be embarrassed as hell at their output.

    Just purchased the new ‪@astutegraphics plugin w/out running the trial. I just know it’s going to be very useful.

    ColliderScribe (like many AG plug-ins) is a no-brainer for Illustrator users. A genuine must-have. Thanks Nick and your team for this essential tool.

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    This tool is fantastic. Did think the cost is very steep but overall the time saving techniques should pay for themselves. Looking forward to create some interesting artwork. Easy install, great tutorials. Will keep this as a secret weapon.

    Recently I started developing a new font and have been using Illustrator to flesh out and refine the presentation. Being a stickler for details, I will spend a tedious amount of time aligning each segment to the 100th of a point. All I can say is, “What would I do without ColliderScribe”! This plugin has been an invaluable asset to my Illustrator arsenal of tools. Thank you AG for this immensely valuable yet deceptively simple piece of work.

    I am seriously in love with these plug ins and now I want them all! 🙂

  16. Rated 3 out of 5

    Great plugin! Super handy in a lot of situations. However, it’s extremely unfortunate that we are unable to collide symbols. I would have given this plugin 5 stars if it collided symbols.

      Thanks for the feedback Jovian. Unfortunately there is no way for us to “interrogate” the contents of symbols without them being first expanded or unlinked – a quick process, but naturally with the side-effect of breaking it’s live nature.

    Astute plugins puts the flow in my work flow. How you WISH Illustrator worked all along.

  18. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love it .
    Saves time and super easy to open and use.
    The Space Fill tool is a nice bonus!

    Next, please make a little, clickable Undo /Redo tool
    I’m not keen on keyboard shortcuts and using Edit > Undo is clumsy and tiresome…

    Wow! Perfect for my needs, thank you!
