Change scale of render work

I have rendered my SU design in Layout. The page is set at A3 at 1:200 but only shows a small part of my large garden design. I want to create a second page showing the entire garden with same render work.

I copied and pasted the page and changed the scale to 1:500. But how do I scale the renderwork? This was based on the page at scale 1:200.

Or is it possible to have two paper sizes in same Layout file? One at A3 and the other one at A1 for example. Would have been useful and I don’t have to change the scale at all.

What is it that you are calling “the renderwork”? Are you referring to a viewport? If so, youcan select the scale for it in the SketchUp Model panel in the tray on the right side of the screen. It would help us help you if you share the LayOut file so we can see what you are working with.

No. Not in the same LayOut file.

Sorry, I refer to the so called ‘shape style’. The coloured bits I have traced over the geometry from SU. They are perfectly aligned in my current scale 1:200, see attached. I now want sale 1:500 on a seperate page but the ‘shapes’ don’t scale down automatically.

No. They won’t. They aren’t supposed to. If you made them as a Scaled Drawing you could adjust their scale in the Scaled Drawing panel. Depending on how you set up the page it might not be too difficult to fix so you can adjust the scale. If you share the actual LayOut file with me I will see what I can do. If you don’t want to make it public send it to me in a private message.

I solved it. I locked the SU drawing. Then marked all the shapes; trees, lawn etc. I scaled the model (‘Measurements’ in bottom right hand corner), down to 0,400;0,400 to match the drawing with the new scale format 1:500. I then just dragged the entire model across in the right location and snapped it over the SU drawing.

Good. It sounds like more work than you probably needed to do but as long as you got it in the end, that’s cool.
