Sketchup Pro 2016 -> Layout,
Using Mac Air mid 2011, OS Sierra, 10.12.3(16D32)
I’ve sent a floor plan from Sketchup to Layout.
There are two features that frustrate.
- I can’t move the 2D image of my model in layout by simply dragging. If I use the select tool and select the entire page, then a small light blue pane shows, and I can awkward hover over an edge, and click, then slide the edge of the pane smaller to middle of page, and then hover over pane edge again to see the quad arrow and move the pane to the middle. Very awkward.
- I can’t easily scale by simply dragging the pane edge (instead I have to get the scale edge to appear (typically as I did above). Then side click on the scale edge, and select “scale” and then set the scale. This is very, very awkward as in some cased the feature I am interested in is zoomed out of sight beyond the edge of the pane. I then have to use a series of two arrow pane moves, and quad arrow pane moves to recenter the feature of interest. In some cases if the scale change required is many steps I have to do this hide and go seek effort on Layout, many, many times.
What do I need to set, on my Mac OSX layout menu such that moving to the image of interest is as simple as clicking on the area of interest and dragging to the center, and then scaling using the panes (or some other hidden feature.)
