Enhanced Smart Guides in Illustrator CC 2015

Enhanced Smart Guides in Illustrator CC 2015

Starting with an update on November 2, 2015, we have enhanced smart guides in Illustrator CC. If you are Photoshop user then you are already familiar with these type of guides which can help you to position and even evenly space objects on the fly just by dragging them and watching smart guides hints and feedback on your screen. In Illustrator you can even draw perfect circles and squares thanks to enhanced smart guides.

Using enhanced smart guides

The very first thing that I want to mention is the ability to draw perfect circles and squares without modifier keys. As you are drawing shapes smart guides will give you hints or feedback when you have perfect circle or square.

Another huge helper and time saver is hint or feedback that you have evenly spaced objects. Just drag your shape or object when you want to have it evenly distributed and wait for the feedback then release the mouse button.

Small things make huge difference what is the case and with improved or enhanced smart guides which will make every Illustrator user happy and more efficient.
