I appreciate your taking the time to reply to my problem, but it remains
unsolved. I went to View/ Edge Style/ (it was time to turn off Back Edges
again anyway). I unchecked everything but edges itself, and unchecking
Extensions removed the bold dark lines that appear in odd places for a
reason I’ve never been able to decipher. But there is no option there for
"endpoints," and the “blobs” remain. Am I looking in the wrong place? By
the way, I am working from a template, one that instructed the program to
do neither of these things–and initially it didn’t. But periodically
Sketchup decides it knows better than I do how I want my files to look.
I don’t want to hit Make a Template when the file I’m in has the issues
that I’m trying to solve, and when I go to System Preferences/ Template
without a file in place all I get is a choice of units of measurement.
I feel like a captive of this program. It’s the only game in town if you
can’t justify the time to master a professional Cad/Cam program, but I do
need to do simple ,basic design stuff, and show it to clients (they wonder
what the blobs signify too). I’m still stumped about how to get rid of the
■■■■ things once and for all. I’d bother someone else, but–to add to my
frustration–I went back to the forum today to see if I could get
additional help, and there was no place to sign in. “Please introduce
yourself.” Any further help would be appreciated.
