    is this a 14-day trial?

    • nick

      SubScribe is a FREE product – however, you do need to request a license key to activate first. To do so, either download the installers here (you will receive a download link and SubScribe key by return via email) to use this SubScribe product page, add to cart and check out for free.

  20. Rated 3 out of 5

    • nick

      Please log into your account and click on the download button.

      If you received your free SubScribe license key by requesting a 14 day free trial of our software (via this page), please refer to the email sent to you for download instructions.

    I got the plugin after watching a tutorial that was using it, but I can’t seem to find the same tool they were using. It’s the tool that connects two circles at the correct points and the icon in the tutorial looks like two circles with a line connecting them at the top… Has the icon changed? Where can I find this tool? Thanks

    • nick

      Hi Tom – if you have successfully installed SubScribe, the “Line tangent to two paths” should be present by default in the top right of the 4 new toolbox icons SubScribe introduces. However, you will find that this tool is at the top of the stack of series of related tools – click and hold down on the “Line tangent to two paths” tool to see the others.

    where is the video tutorial ?

    • Lorna

      Hi Chang,

      We offer a range of Tutorial Videos for each of our plug-ins and these can be accessed in a number of ways:

      * You can access the videos from our website. Simply go to the software page for each plug-in and select ‘Videos’
      * You can also access them all directly over on our YouTube channel
      * When in Illustrator, look at the coloured bar at the top of each plug-in panel, here you will find a menu option on the right hand side and ‘Tutorial Video’ is the third option down. You can also find them in Illustrator by going to Help > Astute Graphics > Product name> Tutorial videos.

      In addition to these Video Tutorials, we regularly publish Blog Tutorials and host live Webinar Tutorials, typically with room for a maximum of 100 people (join early to ensure your seat!)
      If you’re not already following us on social media ( Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram), you can do so in order to receive updates and early notification of these Tutorials, Blogs and Webinars. You can also subscribe to our mailing list for updates

    I have installed the plugin but I cant find Perpendiculars and Tangency Tools.

    • Lorna

      Hi Mitra,

      The plug-in had its numerous individual tools re-ordered from 6 stacks to 4 in order to save vertical toolbox space. The Perpendicular and Tangent tools are now available under the “Line tangent to two paths” tool (top right of the four SubScribe tool stacks).

      I hope this helps. If you have any further issues, please do contact us on

    Great. It blows my mind that adobe doesn’t offer some of this functionality natively (like 3 point arc). Some designs are just impossible to do without it. Any idea as to why?

    Hello, i have a question to ask you, do you support the illustrator 2018 version?
    i just update to 2018 version.

    • Lorna


      All of our plug-ins are CC2018 compatible. When Adobe announced the availability of CC2018 at Adobe MAX 2017, we immediately issued an upgrade to all current-version plug-ins for compatibility, this means that you are able to upgrade to CC2018 whilst still keeping all of your latest Astute Graphics plug-ins.

      If you have already installed CC2018, then simply log in to your customer account (ensuring that you have quit illustrator first) and download and run the latest installer from the Downloads section.

    How do i create an account on your website? there seems to be nowhere to click to open a new account. Please help

    • Lorna

      If at this stage, you wish to just create an account without making a purchase, then please can I ask you to do the following:

      • Go to our website and add our free plug-in Autosaviour Free to your basket
      • Checkout – no money will be taken, but this will create an account for you and you will receive an email containing a license key (for step by step instruction on installing and activating, please refer to our Installation Guide).

      Alternatively, if you are planning to purchase a plug-in, then the act of making this purchase will create your account.

    I’ve used subscribe in the past and have loved it, but recently I had to switch to another computer to use it. After several days of tinkering around and waiting on an email back about my problem from Astute Support. I am unable to get subscribe to show up on Illustrator CC2019. My computer shows that subscribe is installed, but it just will not show up on Illustrator. I did install the trial version of Dynamic Sketch to see if that would work on Illustrator and it does. So for some reason subscribe does not work. I guess I should of tried the trial version of subscribe instead of buying a second key for it first. I hope I will get an email from Astute soon about this problem, but in the mean time I will assume Astute subscribe does not work for Illustrator CC2019 yet.
