I was just suggesting ways to use imported content in LayOut with the tools we have now.
To be honest, I think that as long as 2D CAD-type drawings are needed, most firms will stick to their AutoCads, and with the featureset and workflow of LayOut it is not going to replace it very soon. LayOut is to SketchUp what paper space tabs are to model space drawings in AutoCad, and things related to the model/drawing are best held in "model space". I have never heard of an AutoCad user drawing his/her details in Paper space - with the resulting need to scale everything in your head or with a calculator, as, the paper in Autocad is like the paper in LayOut in that the only scale it knows is 1:1.
With BIM applications this whole workflow is different. BIM applications have their live 2D views of the model. When 2D details are needed, these are added to these views as view-specific detail/annotation graphics. Then when output is needed we place these views on sheets. When graphical objects or text are created directly on a sheet these are purely annotative, just like in paper space views in AutoCad or on LayOut pages.
Just random ramblings
