Layout features in Rhino 6 for Mac

Are you planning to make the Layout funcion also more powerful in Rhinoceros 6 mac?

The one in version 5 is too basic.

Can you please give specific examples of what features you are missing in Layouts that should be in Rhino 6 for Mac?

Well first of all I don’t understand why the background in layouts is black (trying to test it out in Rhino mac 5.5.1

I would like to have:
Master Pages, transparent hatches, gradients.

I’ll try to give mor detailed feedback once I solved my black layout background issue.

In Preferences > Colors , pressing Restore Defaults should fix that.

Many, many thanks! That fixed it!

I now know also where to change the color of the layout in case it messes up again.

As I wrote before, I’ll try to use Rhino mac layouts for real now to give a detailed feedback of what could be included in the next version.

It would also be very useful, to have some folder/tabs to organize layouts.
I work with sometimes ±100 layouts and it is not very efficient to scroll down the list…

Thank you

when using Technical display mode in layouts vector output would be great :smile:

In Layout mode, when I save a pdf (Raster Output), and change the line width scale under “linetypes and line widths” in the print menu, it changes also the scale of the hatch patterns.

Not very convenient.

Btw: How do I switch off a layer only in a selected detail view?

in layouts in the right hand side panel, you should see a dedicated panel which is assigned to each layout page, you can turn on/off layers for that layout detail. I find the command ‘HideInLayout’ very useful too :slight_smile: hth

I’ve seen that, but I would need to be able to swicht off a layer in a specific detail view, not in the entire page.

HideInLayout will be your friend

Thank you, I tried it and it worked!

Or, in the Layout Layers’ Panel, activate the detail you need and turn off the layer.

I don’t know what is going on here, tried the Layout command for the first time, and it all starts lagging and the whole sheet is black and strange…

Is there some reason for this? What did I do wrong?

Hi @julian.riise, that seems like a graphic card issue, can you run _SystemInfo and paste the result here.

Are you using an iPad as a second display?
Are you running a Mac with an Intel 6000, or 6100?
