SketchUp Pro 2020 and macOS Big Sur 11

Our preliminary testing of SketchUp 2020.1 on the second developer beta release of macOS Big Sur (11.0) is complete. We have uncovered some minor UI-related issues with SketchUp and LayOut, and are investigating possible solutions. As with all pre-release software, we recommend that users exercise caution when upgrading their systems to Big Sur.
