Back in 2009 when I started using SketchUp people would ask me how to make dash lines… did this happen to anyone else?
I’d spend a good 5 minutes explaining how they were unnecessary in the sketchup world because of the way it models in 3d rather than in 2D where you need to show things that aren’t visible. Sure I use dashed lines in layout for professional engineering drawings, but maybe Trimble when they released SU2019 were just looking at features to implement from 10 years ago. Maybe they’re so far back in development that in 10 years they’ll find out what the core community has been asking for and layout will be quick or SketchUp won’t lag with large textures, shadows and complex models. Maybe in 20 years Trimble connect will work with more than one XRef and be useful… too bad they made a subscription model everyone hates instead of a kickstarter and we’ll have to wait or move softwares.
I’m with Eneroth: more plugins and less native tools that I won’t use is better. I have 19 extensions enabled used every day for engineering and architectural work(weld, 1001bit tools, 3skeng, bezier line, CleanUp, face creator, fog, solid inspector, twilight, etc…); 12 disabled that are occasionally used (contours, fur, etc…) or useless (Advanced Camera tools).
