Add measurements to your artwork You will need to create a swatch called "Cutter" for this script to run (this was created for a specific purpose: feel free to remove this requirement). Then, just select an item on your artwork and run the script. Measurements are in mm and are created on a new layer and grouped for easy repositioning

This script is offered free and as-is, please feel free to mould it to your requirements. Just leave some feedback if you find it useful, please.

Has anyone found similar script for that calculates in inches, or modified this script for that purpose?

Also how to get it to NOT round, or go out to 4 decimals? (1.1234)

Great script! Is there a way to add the rounded corners to the dimensioning?
