More Precision and Placement Options for Decals
A way to fix UV mapping or the ability to choose specific faces to apply decals to. I'm working with complex shapes and decals are currently not cooperating with me
Hello! In our next release we’ve added automatic UV generation and error fixing so if you have a model with no UVs or that we detect UV errors you’ll get a prompt to resolve the issue.
This process is currently fully automatic and we are not yet adding manual UV mapping and controls. Once the new feature is out we’ll continue to evaluate providing manual custom UV controls.

I'd like to move decals so they are in a precise location, please can you work on a way of moving them that isn't freehand?

The most difficult part in my work with Dimension is to manage the UVmap: even if the face model and the Decal were exactly the same sizes, the textures never corresponded exactly. It would have helped me to be able to indicate the size in cm of a each decal.
I have just posted a new Feature Request for Sleeve Wrapping.

I noticed that the AI sometimes help (Or making it worse) when I drop decal onto a 3D model. Sometimes I just want to move slight a bit but I can't. The XYZ feature for now seems to be only controling the ratio of the image, but not how the image is placed on the surface of the model. Also, as my attachment shows, sometimes I want to make my mock up perfect which I want to mock up the pages underneath the top pages as well. But since the pages I want to mock up is underneath another surface, it's just impossible. Therefore I am hoping there's a XYZ control pannal that I can still moving it around without eyeballing or give up.

This would be great, I have some bottles (PSD) which need new labels (PDF/ai/PSD) wrapping round, quite time consuming in Photoshop, these will need to be 300dpi for print.

I wish that the decals didn't scale with the models.
For example: If I scale down the Y on my object, I want the option for the decal to not be scaled down along the Y thereby messing up the decal's image ratio.

I would like to be able to import drawings to scale so that when exported to Aero they come in at the correct size, yet still have the ability to rotate and reduce/scaleup.

Add more control points to the decal positioning feature. Art needs to map more accurately to the model.

Wrapping decals, I'm trying to wrap a label around a cylinder or even the jar model and its doing this
adding decal is easy, resizing it is difficult. Why the hell does the size say "1,800%"? 1 point 8 percent? When iI drag the slider it ads TINY increments so it takes forever to enlarge the decal. :-(
