Hi, I’m sorry if this might seem a bit primitive, but I am new to using the Ruby API. I want to be able to show the user a preview of where the object is going to be placed. To do so, after the user clicks anywhere on the screen, I use the
Sketchup.active_model.entities.add_line pts, pte to draw a line showing where the object is going to be on the mouse move event.
Everything works for me so far, the one issue that I have is that each line that I am drawing is written to history. So after I am done drawing the object, if I want to undo what I had just done, I would have to keep undoing also for all of the mouse move events for which I drew a line.
So my question is: is there any way to draw a line on the screen on the mouse move event for giving the user a preview, without it being recorded in the history. Or in other words, is there a way to show a line to the user, without actually drawing it?
