Great documents often feature important, so we built Tables; a great way to manage spreadsheets in LayOut. Create a Table
from scratch, or import a .CSV or Excel file. Tables behave just like other spreadsheets: edit text, style cells, modify columns and rows... you get the gist. LayOut references your original spreadsheet so updating every Table in your document is as simple as .... click !!
High Fidelity .DWG
Many people use linework from SketchUp in other CAD applications. We’ve re-written LayOut’s .DWG/.DXF exporter to make their lives a lot easier.

Previously, a ten page LayOut file would export as ten separate .DWGs. Now you’ll get just one .DWG with ten separate tabs for each page.
In the old days, LayOut entities like dimensions, clipping masks, and labels would explode into raw geometry upon export. Now, they’ll import smartly into AutoCAD and behave just as expected.
LayOut exports are now smart enough to self-scale for paper size or model space. Drawing entities like labels and polygons scale to paper size. Model linework scales to model space. Voilà!
Color by Layer
We’ve added an oft-requested ‘Color-by-Layer’ option to CAD exports, so all entities on a given layer may export as one color. By default, black linework exports so that it renders as black on a white background and white on a black background. That’s like candy for CAD fiends.
