I recently found this little plugin, and I love it. I think its on of the few additions I would love to have in the Astute graphics line of features. I use illustrator often and the ability to mirror my image and small little time savers is fantastic. I am using Illustrator cs5.1 and this still works. No issues at all, but it is listed as compatible with CS3, and 4 only, so I will update if I have future issues, but so far so good.

Haven't tried this update yet, since I'm still waiting for my CS3 to arrive. But the mirror function alone in the CS2 version has been the backbone of so much of the Illustrator work I've produced over the past few years that I didn't even consider upgrading until I was certain I could bring this function along. Sure you can eventually get the same results without the plugin, but at the cost of how many extra steps?

I'll send $40 right away to the first person who can show me the existing function that lets you drag a mirrored copy over your starting drawing until it's positioned against it exactly the way you want, and then fuses the two automatically when you let go.

If you regularly need to draw complex symmetrical shapes, you must check this elegant, intuitive and high-speed function out.

Can't wait for Vincent's equally essential Curvius to get updated; yet another God-send for technical drawing. Many thanks!

Right off the bat, I knew this was going to be a bit of a waste of time.

Mirror, Cut, Rosette and Tile can all be done quite easily with the basic tools in Illustrator already. So half the tools Kimbo provides don't need to be there - so take off $20 of the price.

What's left? Well, I don't know because the remaining tools I couldn't really figure out a use for, thus they really aren't work a nickel to me, let alone $20. And, like the first few tools, they can all be done with the built-in tools.

This needs to be in the $5 range for the whole group of them. Even then, someone who uses Illustrator is probably knowledgeable enough that they can figure out how to do everything these plugins do with the built in tools

kind of expensive for what it does IMO.
