Following intensive development, Astute Graphics is proud to release Phantasm CS for Illustrator CS6.
A big “thank you” to all our customers who we know have been waiting patiently for this moment.
We’ve received loads of feedback telling us many of you have not yet moved over to CS6 because you just can’t do without these tools. This initial version is for Mac OS. Please be assured that we are working hard on the Windows version which will be available shortly, together with VectorScribe and DrawScribe.

As you’ll notice from the movie above, we’ve invested heavily in ensuring perfect integration with Adobe’s new user interface. This is because we aim to improve your creative workflow at every opportunity.
We are releasing Phantasm CS for Illustrator CS6 initially as a public beta. This is the first time Astute Graphics have taken this approach and reflects our awareness of the urgency to get CS6 upgrades into the hands of designers.
We feel that this version (
2.5.6 2.5.7) is very stable having already undergone extensive testing. However, we are aware of the following minor issues which need to be resolved: Ink coverage output preview mode does not allow for values to be edited
- Occasionally, windows lose keyboard focus
Filter/Effect/Panel positions are not preserved
- Popup controls don’t allow picking values with click-drag, requiring click-click
Separations panel shows the full separation list at startup (when no artwork is loaded) Artboards may not be positioned correctly when using the Output Preview tools Spot swatches defined in LAB are displayed as black or white swatches in user interface color pickers
It is anticipated that an update to resolve these issues will be made available very shortly.
If any additional issues are found, please do not hesitate to contact us via beta at astutegraphics dot co dot uk
