Hybrid render all viewports at export

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

Hybrid render all viewports at export

Postby Jupeter » Tue May 19, 2020 9:25 am

Hello Sketchucation community :)

I would like to ask if there is a way that i can get Layout o render all the viewports to hybrid at the moment I export my file to PDF.

I work with arquitectural design. I edit with the file with all viewports on raster, so that my mac doesnt gets too slow to edit it confortably. When I want to export the fisnished proyect for printing, I go to each individual viewport and tell it to render it in hybrid. Each time i do so, Layout takes 10-15 minutes to render the viewport. In one set of plans I have 14 or more viewports so it takes a couple of hours of sitting by the computer waiting for it to finish one, so i can tell it to render the next one.

I would like to be able to tell Layout to automatically select all the viewports and render them to hybrid before or when I export it to pdf. I dont mind it taking a couple of hours to process, so long as I dont have to sit idly next to the machine, telling it to repeat the same process with the next page.

This is my first time posting on this forum. I would like to thank everybody in advance for any help on this subject.

Have a nice day

At present not possible as far as I can see, needs a clever script writer perhaps.
Do you have more than one viewport on a page? If so you can select all the viewports and render them as one. But you probably knew that...
You can use the Style dropper to sample a previous viewport setting as well, might save a bit of time...
And if you click on the next page even while the 'Wait' doughnut is circling, it will go there eventually, bit more of a visual clue if your attention wanders...
