Layout lost "Undo" & "Redo"

I just upgraded to MacOS Catalina yesterday, so I don’t know if this is a Layout or MacOS glitch, but Layout is losing the “Undo” and “Redo” commands. The menu bar is blank there, and the keyboard shortcuts do nothing. It happened this morning, so I closed Layout and reopened it, and the functions returned for a few minutes and now are gone again.

What version of LayOut? Your profile doesn’t say. (Please complete your profile so we don’t have to ask)

There have been numerous reports of issues with Catalina. The SketchUp and LayOut teams are working on updates to make SU/LO 2019 compatible with Catalina but at this point the general wisdom is to wait on upgrading the OS.

We are aware of LayOut’s undo/redo issue on Catalina. As @DaveR pointed out, we’re working on addressing these problems.

I am on Pro 2019. I have never noticed the Profile section, but just updated my information there. Always a tough debate on downloading a new OS and enjoying the shiny new stuff versus taking the hits on glitches and bugs… Thanks.

Yeah. I get it. Probably it’s best to give the suppliers of your important software a chance to catch up.

Thanks for updating your profile.

Hi All, we currently have a bug in LayOut and macOS Catalina where using the File, Insert… will disable the Undo and Redo functions. Saving, closing then reopening the file will bring those functions back.

All available file types inserted via the File, Insert… pulldown are affected by this bug. These include: SketchUp models, all image types and dwg/dxf’s. The issue does not occur when using the Send to LayOut function from SketchUp or dragging and dropping the entity types straight into LayOut.

The only known workaround when using insert via the pulldown menu is to Insert, Save, close then reopen the file before working any further.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
