Once more, a big “thank you” to all our customers who we know have been waiting patiently for this moment.
VectorScribe was perhaps the most eagerly anticipated release of Astute Graphics’ plugins for CS6. 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 DrawScribe.

We have continued the tradition of all Astute Graphics releases in investing much time and effort in ensuring the host application’s look and feel are meticulously maintained. The level of integration within CS6 is very impressive.
Revealing the new expression parsing system
The first advantage of all the work undertaken to recreate the user interface for Illustrator CS6 is present in this release — an improved expression parsing system.
With native Illustrator, it has always been possible to enter values such as “10.4 – 3.7″. Now, commencing with VectorScribe for CS6, all VectorScribe tool value entry windows can accommodate more complex entries such as “(10pt/3.4) + 1.97mm”.
As with the initial release of Phantasm CS for Illustrator CS6, it is initially being offered as a stable and mature beta. We are aware of no significant issues at present.
The new installer also features new beta versions (v1.6.0) of builds for Illustrator CS3 to CS5. If you operate these earlier versions of Illustrator, you may wish to upgrade to these latest versions which feature internal technical enhancements.
If any issues are found, please do not hesitate to contact us via beta at astutegraphics dot co dot uk
Existing Mac OS VectorScribe users can download the CS6 installer from www.astutegraphics.com/download/.
Simply quit Illustrator CS6 and run the installer, following the instructions.
