The big move for Astute Graphics towards CS6 compatibility is starting to deliver results. Not only is SubScribe Designer now available for Mac OS, but initially it is being made available on Adobe’s exciting new Adobe Exchange in-app store system.
Better still, we have made SubScribe Designer for CS6 FREE to ALL Illustrator CS6 users!
About SubScribe Designer
SubScribe is Astute Graphics’ newest professional plugin. Initially released free to Astute Graphics customers, it allows all designers and operators to improve their creative workflow. Drawing circles and arcs defined by 2 or 3 points, orientating – or straightening – artwork easily, drawing tangents and perpendiculars to curves are all within a few clicks.

SubScribe Designer for Illustrator CS3 to CS5 (Mac and Windows) currently remains free to Astute Graphics customers.

These are early days for Adobe Exchange (officially still in the Adobe Labs section ie. “beta”) and we are proud to be working with Adobe to help ensure the process of delivering tools direct to users with Illustrator is further refined.
