2020.2 Moving objects around in Layout

When moving or copying objects around in Layout you can only see the bounding box and none of the contents anymore.

This makes it difficult to line things up sometimes.

Is there an option to turn this new mode off and revert to the old way it worked? or is this how it is now?

Also when resizing.

It’s the new improvement for selecting and transforming - see that release notes.

This is sometimes an issue but overall the improvement. for me, has made Layout better

You should still be able to move things with precision to line things up and resize them.

There is no option to turn it off.

Cheers, thanks guys. No worries. I’ll get used to it.

Having a modifier key that would keep the Sketchup model visible would be helpful for me and my team. We use that when snapping the model to grid.
