I get so frustrated trying to use lay out. This is what I need help on.
A) I see something in LO that needs fixing on the SU model. I go to the model, fix it, save it, export it to LO. There is no change. There doesn’t seem to be a way to update the corrected scene. Ultimately, I close LO without saving and restart the process over. I have looked at every pull down, I have clicked on the section when if is in the blue box, and nowhere is there an update button.
B) I want to move some of the tools like pan down to the tool bar. I have tried - 10 -15 times with no luck.
C) I re-import my model to open another blue box, and when I try to move it, it resizes itself. So then I go reset the scale, reclick “preserve scale” and mostly it doesn’t resize, but all too frequently it changes scale, and I have to re-rescale and re-represerve.
D) I like to draw my models in shaded faces, Lord help me if I forget to reset the style to hidden line before making scenes and saving it and exporting to LO. If I don’t, I end up having to close LO without saving, going back to SU, deleting all of my scenes, changing the style to HL, remake all of the scenes, resave, reopen LO and start afresh.
What is wrong? I have SU 2018. Should I delete it and open an earlier version? I liked 2016 a lot - it was easier to draw. These new gimmicks on the ends of the drawing tools are so annoying when they turn on by themselves and draw something like a centered rectangle when I don’t want one.
