Draw Dieline for Illustrator CS can reduce production time by drawing the template for you. All you have to do is type in the dimension for the label height. Type in the size of each panel using a space between each dimension. Enter the optional 4 No Print Margin dimensions (TOP BOTTOM LEFT RIGHT) with a space between each dimension or press the "Skip" button. Watch how fast Illustrator draws the template; complete with die, clear colors and corresponding layers. Dieline even draws the correct dimension lines and arrow heads. Works in millimeters or inches. When rerunning the script, it is possible to convert the measurements from Millimeters to Inches and vice versa by switching the measurement setting.
