Control line width, colour, and pattern by tag in Layout
Layout has been missing one big feature for professional drafting: full line control. But that has now changed. Over the years, we’ve also learned a lot about how Layout users stacked viewports to create incredible 2D drawings. The biggest lesson: it would be great if you didn’t have to stack performance-impacting viewports to get drawings to look the way you want.
You can now control the line style of SketchUp tags in Layout. Before this update, rendering a plan view with different line weights meant hiding a bunch of geometry, creating different scenes, and stacking viewports.
Now you can adjust the edge width, colour, dash pattern, and dash scale in one viewport by assigning and styling tags.
Linear inference toggles for the Line tool in SketchUp
SketchUp inferencing comes in all shapes and sizes. One of the most distinct is the linear inferencing that allows you to snap or lock to the red, green, and blue axes. Linear inferencing makes SketchUp work, but it can also get in the way; for instance, if you are working with very small spaces or tracing images.
The Line tool now features a modifier key to toggle linear inferencing on and off, so you can draw edges without being snapped to an inference. You can turn off all inferences, or leave only parallel and perpendicular inferencing on. Of course, you can still jump to a specific inference — red, green, blue, or magenta — using the arrow keys.
