I am working on Mac and trialling the new 2023 Layout version. It’s not great.
There is no Preference button anywhere on the tabs, but my colleague who is using windows, downloaded the same software, has it on hers.
I have used Layout and Sketchup before and have been very comfortable with the software. I upgrade every year. But 2023 version is not good at all with lots of issues. I am having more trouble shoot with the overall measurements with millimetres showing in decimals. i.e. 660mm shows 6.6mm
The 6.6mm length indicates you’ve moved something or drawn a line that is 6.6mm long in paper space dimensions. If you want that to show 660mm, start a scaled drawing and set the scale to the appropriate scale.
Some things have changed. Setting scales hasn’t since the first version of LayOut nor has the location of Preferences in the LayOut menu. The Scaled Drawing features has been around for quite a few versions.
this is funny since layout for mac and PC is way closer than sketchup for mac and PC. beyond the position of the settings panel, and the use of mac os’ text panel, it’s pretty much the same.
Can you provide a photo or a screenshot of what you call the “preference button on the tabs” in the windows version ? Because beyond the settings panel you found (that is located in the… edit menu ? on PC ? no other difference) I’m not sure what you’re talking about.
