Text "list" not working in Layout 2019


Since downloading the sketchup 2019 the “list” function under the text tab no longer does anything. The dialog box opens up and lets me select the various options but then does nothing to the selected text. Anyone else having this issue? or a solution?

It may be related to this from the Release Notes.

  • (Mac) We fixed an issue where a crash would occur when accessing ‘Other’ on the Text Styles pulldown when rulers are active. We are preventing the accessory view from coming up and now Text edits can only be done from the Fonts panel.


Unfortunately lists cannot be created via the text panel. I’m running the latest version of Layout 2019 and with rulers enabled, you can still do text formatting outside of the text panel via the Text Menu. However, Lists still do nothing.

I know that I can go back to running Layout 2018. However, once a doc is started in 2019 you cannot open it up in an older version. I’d like to stick to the most current version if possible.



Well, you could save it as a LayOut 2018 file and open it in the older version.

You could make a list by creating a table in LayOut or create it in a spreadsheet app or text editor and insert the file into LO.



All very true, but it would be nice if the software worked as designed :slight_smile:
