We spend a lot of time in Layout marking our drawings, adding descriptions, etc.
One thing that is consistently annoying is snapping a point in one viewport to a point in another viewport or layout object. For example think about aligning floor line from one elevation to another so they are on the same level in layout paper.
Therefore we need better snapping for move/rotate tools so we could actually pick a point in one viewport and snap it to another object (be it in layout or in another viewport).
In autocad for example you see snap points when you hover over a line and one can select exact start point and end point for where you want to move object from and to.
Also having an option to select which snapping is turned on or off would be very handy too. In Autocad you can select weather you want to snap to end points, mid points, parallels, perpendicular objects, etc. And you can turn them on and off individually.
In sketchup we currently only have ‘snap to grid’ and ‘snap to objects’ option.
It would also be handy to have a ‘wireframe’ view of the viewports where you can turn off thickness of all of the lines (like autocad display line weight on/off switch).
It would also be handy to have a global switch to turn off all the textures. This would not only help with snapping but also speed up display considerably.
