Okay, so this was not a problem in 2014, but it is a problem in 2015. In the past, when you created scenes, it would save active layers per scene as well as camera angle. So, for instance, if I wanted to make a plan cut and remove all doors and windows in a scene, I could just put all doors and windows on a layer and hide that layer during the scene. Then, if I ever went back to that scene, or if I went to layout to create a plan set, it would save layer visibility preferences in that scene.
In 2015, it seems that the scenes have become detached from layer visibility selection. Now, whatever layers I have active will stay active, regardless of which scene I select. The same goes for section cuts. If I have a section cut active in Scene 1, then switch to scene 2, none of my layers change and my section cut doesn’t change. So I change it manually, and then I update the the scene. But then I go back to scene 1, and the only change is the camera angle, not the section cut or layer visibility. I
Is there a new option somewhere that I need to be selecting to tie layer visibility to my scenes?
I’m having the same problem. I setup a scene, I update it, got to the next scene, which shows additional layers, and when I go back to the first scene I setup, it show the additional layers from other scenes. This is so frusterating. Does anybody a have any suggestions? Is Sketchup aware of the problem? Are they doing anything about it?
I haven’t found the answer (yet) but what puzzles me is why you make some layer other than Layer0 the active layer and then at some point update the scene. Although you can make other layers the active ones, Layer0 should be the active layer. Maybe this is the root of your ploblem.
I am having the same issue and have not seen a solution that fixes this issue yet. I have tried everything. If I have all of the boxes checked and I have the layers I want on or off for each scene why does it change when I change from scene to scene.
There is a bug somewhere that needs to be fixed. In Autocad there is a feature called VISRETAIN that either turns this feature on or off with regards to saved views and layers.
I tried to make it fail on a new sketch and can’t. The problem does exist in an existing sketch. Something must have happened to the existing sketch. I’ve copied everything to a new sketch, created the necessary scenes and layers and it’s working now.
