How to hide nodes in Layout when moving from Sketchup


#1

I have made some 2D layouts in Sketchup. However, once I insert these to Layout, the nodes at the end of the lines or junctions appear as crossing lines. Is there a way to hide these nodes or make them show up as proper corners in Layout?

That’s a style setting in SketchUp. Edit the style and turn off endpoints and extensions. Update the style, save the changes in SU and update the reference in LO and Bob’s yer uncle.


#3

Change the Style’s Edge setting by Editing the Style used in the Scene tab…
Save the SKP, reload it into the Layout document.

"…And Bob’s your uncle!"
It’s widely accepted that the expression arose in the UK, after Conservative Prime Minister Robert “Bob” Cecil appointed his nephew, Arthur Balfour, as Chief Secretary for Ireland in 1887; apparently this was surprising and unpopular.
In this sense it carried a hint of sarcastic envy or resentment, rather like “it’s who you know; not what you know” that gets results, or in this case “easy when you know how”.

The illustration from @Cotty is more “Bob’s your builder!” [a UK TV series for kids]

Over on this side of the pond the phrase is used to mean something more like, “and that’s all there is to it.”

Mostly when quotes are attributed to famous people, especially to Einstein, Groucho Marx or Mark Twain, you can be almost sure that the attribution is false.
