Diagonal hatch lines in Skjetchup? Layout

Hi, I’m drawing a Floor Plan in SketchUp, I then assign tags to each line and amend the weight/ style of the line in Layout.

I need to use a diagonal hatch line to show rugs and there’s no option for this type of line available in Layout. Is there a way of doing this? Either in the original SketchUp drawing or in Layout?

Draw an area in Layout and assign a diagonal line pattern to it. you can decide to show the stroke around the area or turn it off. There is a youtube video on how to use patterns, colors etc.

Hi Mike

Thanks for responding, much appreciated! It’s just the border line that needs to be a diagonal hash line. Not the face of a shape - if you see what I mean!

Attached shows what I need. Any ideas?

Kind Regards

i would draw a square within a square within a square and add a pattern to the middle square

Control the pattern and stroke at the red arrows. Image on the right has the stroke on the middll and inner square turned off.

I have made some “object” “linetypes” as dynamic blocks in SketchUp

Thank you so much! Really helpful of you and much appreciated :slight_smile:
