  1. Groups should retain align to object axes

    After creating a group (and rotating it), then selecting other objects, the "align to scene" axes are lost (always shows axes aligned to scene).

    Currently, if I'm working with a lot of objects that aren't square to the scene, I have to rotate my entire set of objects temporarily while I work with them, then rotate everything when I'm finished.

    Fixing this would be a big help!

  2. Highlight object collisions (intersections)

    Currently, when one object is intersecting/colliding with another, it can be difficult to tell. While this doesn't have to be precise for my print work, I have started exporting (especially the new text features) for 3D printing — which of course requires a model's surfaces to be connected. If there was some way of highlighting this — such as using an alternate border color, that would be great!

  3. Ability to change selection color

    I work a lot with cyan objects, since most of my work is for creative tutorials that go to print. Dimension's selection color is always cyan, which makes it difficult to see what I've selected. Is there any way that the selection color can be changed, like in other CC apps?

  4. Where Am I? A virtual reference 'system'

    One of the most challenging things for me in Dimension is 'location orientation'-in other words 'where am I?".


    1. Would like multiple views-Front Top, botttom, right side, default perspective?

    2. The ability to turn on a 'temporary' 3d bounding box, so when change my view the 'walls' of the bounding box say top, bottom, front, etc...So I have some way to my location and orientation

    Hard to explain -let me know if you want me try to desrcibe it differently -thanks

  5. Would have been nice to have the option to drag and extend the materials section. As of now I can't the whole names when I am on grid mode.

    Would have been nice to have the option to drag and extend the materials section to the right. As of now I can't see the complete name of the materials when I am on grid mode. Another solution could be to have an option to scale the grid view thumbnail size

  6. Ability to erase parts of an object model

    Not cut/delete, more in the sense of the eraser tool in Photoshop but for Dimension. Say I have a sphere and I wanted to make it into a jack o lantern or even something as simple as erasing 1/4 of the object. Something to erase parts of the model, not ALL of it. Without having to import/export to blender or other software.

  7. Select Same (Material)

    Illustrator has a handy function that could be very useful in Dimension. When a single vector object is selected, you can click on the "Select" menu and choose "Same". Then you can choose a whole bunch of different attributes such as appearance or Fill Color or Stroke.

    I would like to select a single part or object in Dimension and choose Select Same Material and have it select all the objects with the same material.

    I know I can group all the objects with the same material together. I do that now as a work around. It would just be…

  10. French keyboard shortcuts

    I have a "default french shortcuts" issue on the new camera behaviors :

    I like it a lot to have top, right, left view, assigned to 1234, except, by default, on a standard french mac keyboard, top row is dedicated to &é"'(§è!çà). You can press shift to get 1234… but that means alt-2 becomes alt-shift-2 on a laptop, and it becomes way less practical as a 2 fingers shortcut.

    I've also recently discovered the pref menu, so I know i should be able to edit this, but:
    1. if you make a "french keyboard default setup", that would really help. …

  11. Add HSB; RGB, Grayscale sliders

    It would be nice to have HSB; RGB, and Grayscale sliders for more precise color tweaking inside Base Color panel, just like in other Adobe apps.

  12. Spinners, nudging, units

    Can we have spinners for dimension/scale/etc. changes? Right now you have to actually type a number in each field. Spinners are used in 3DS, and they save lots of time.

    Is it possible to nudge the maps? Nudging is standard in other Adobe apps.

    Is there a way to permanently set the units to our choice instead of it defaulting to metric each time?

  13. Resize grouped models independently of group

    When resizing a group, there is no way to prevent resizing of individual models; conversely, there is no way to resize all models within a group without resizing the group, except to resize each model one by one.
    I work with lots of models in various arrangements, and sometimes need to adjust their spacing. Enlarging the group, then going around a cascade of 54 models one by one to readjust their size is awfully time consuming.
    In Illustrator, we have “Transform Each” — this is exactly what I’m looking for here. Thanks!

  14. Duplicating model or group shouldn’t move original to bottom of scene list

    When duplicating models or groups, the original models shift to the bottom of the scene list, and the newly duplicated item has the same name in the scene list. This is super confusing to begin with — and since I keep the steps (layers) of building the object in order, I’m constantly reorganizing the scene list.

    A duplicated object should appear in the list above and adjacent to the original (and ideally, the duplicate should be labeled “copy” or increment index number)

  15. Entering property values after using the tab key doesn’t work

    I do lots fine-grain editing of the position, scale, and rotation with 100+ models in a scene. I currently have to click the object then click the value to change it. If I use tab (or faster, shift-tab) to navigate to the property I wish to edit, the edit screen looks like it’s saved the input, but it hasn’t and nothing’s changed.

    Please fix this, not just because it's a workflow issue but because it’s also an accessibility issue. Thanks!

  16. Expandable tool palette

    Many designers now work with HD monitor, 4K, 5K and above, with plenty of room for all the tools to be visible. I'd like to see a way to expand the tools so I don't have to use the pull-out menus so often. In all, the tool palette should look and behave like they do in the other ACC apps. Thanks. A.C.

  17. Move "+" icon elsewhere

    Please move the "+" Import Content icon from right on top of the tools. I keep thinking that it's a way to expand the tool palette or ... add tools? This symbol should be on top of the asset column, for example. Thanks. A.C

  19. Copy Coordinates of an object

    If you want to place an object A (sphere) in another object B (hemisphere), then the fastest way would be to copy the coordinates from B and paste them to A.

  20. Grid in front

    If you arrange objects in a room, a simple 3x3 grid would be very helpful. It should be possible to show and hide it. At the moment, I'm helping myself by using such a grid as a background image, but it's only an emergency solution.
