The main request since version 1.0 was about the overlapping labels, so we did that. But there is more new stuff inside, let’s have a look :)
The plugin does not limit you anymore with one full wrap around the cone. Now you can use a wider label that overlaps itself. The plugin shows if the label is overlapping or not, and also provides the circumference of the cone for your convenience.
You usually design a label with a specific diameter in mind. Old version of the plugin used middle cone diameter, which wasn’t convenient enough, so the new version lets you choose if you want to use top, middle or bottom cone diameters to fit the label.
This means that you can measure the cone at the top, middle or bottom, then design the label according to that measurement and simply select a proper option in the plugin to get the proper result.
Here is the list of other features and fixes of this release:
Give the new version a try and let us know what do you think in the comments below.
As usual, use the links below to download the software:
Make sure you quit Illustrator first, then on Mac you can simply replace the “aip” bundle with the new one, on Windows you need to remove the old “Conical Label” folder first, then copy a new one there, so the files from the old and new versions do not mix up. Read here for more details on installation and upgrade of the plugin.
