LayOut takes your 3D model into 2D space; it’s the tool for creating documentation from your SketchUp model as a 3D to 2D converter. You start in SketchUp, draw your project and create scenes to show the different views. then you can send the file to LayOut, add dimensions, labels, other text, photos, or whatever else you need to help communicate your project.
There are several ways to quickly create and copy text across multiple pages in a LayOut document, but modifying text across an entire document has always been difficult. You need to inspect every page and text box of your document. That’s why you’ll love Find & Replace in LayOut! With Find & Replace, changes to text in a selection, a page, or a document is a much quicker process. This not only helps speed up the quality assurance process, but you can update drawing titles, page numbers, specified building materials, and fix typos more efficiently.
As in other applications, Find & Replace can be activated with the Ctrl/Command + F shortcut and from the Text menu in LayOut.
With Auto-Text updates and Find & Replace, LayOut helps you work faster and more efficiently than ever before. In addition to existing labels that pull entity or component attributes from SketchUp viewports in LayOut, we are introducing new Auto-Text tags that can be selected from the Auto-Text menu in label creation or templated labels.
You can use all of these labels in scrapbooks or with transparent label leaders. This means that you can drag Auto- Text labels in from a scrapbook, hit enter to drag the label leader, and then the value associated with that viewport automatically displays.
