Hey all-
does anyone have an idea of how I can find the X and Y coordinates of a specific place in a design? I work with illustrator and the best way for that program is to turn on smart guides and my cursor displays it when I drag it over any point. Can this be done in Tajima?

Hi Chad,

Currently, the best way to determine coordinates is to either use guidelines in combination with the ruler to mark a coordinate, or to simply look at the rulers, which will always have two bars (one horizontal, one vertical) that follow your mouse around.

Both of these can be used to give you a fairly accurate estimate of the coordinates, and DG measurements can be displayed in millimeters or inches depending on your preference.

Creating a digital indication of your mouse coordinates is a good idea though, and we would appreciate it if you could write your thoughts about this topic in the Feature Requests page as well!
