I have been using SketchUp's LayOut program exclusively - never had the nerve to deal with all the 3D stuff in SketchUp, too complicated for me.
I use it maybe 2 times a year, to make a few drawings that I can give to contractors to do some work for me, or to draw something to get proportions right. All in 2D, that's all I need.
Now I made the big mistake to "upgrade" to the latest version - and all of a sudden, the simple 2D program is behind a $600 pay wall (while the 3D part is not - and it can't open the 2D files from Layout).
I can't edit my drawings anymore, I can't find a program that can read the Layout files...
Who knows what to do here, how to find an alternative to the super-expensive (for a hobbyist) Pro version, ideally something that allows me to edit the drawings that I started in Layout?
Thanks for your help!
