Error reading, how do I add scrapbook on my sketchup 2D floor plan?

Hi there,

I am having issues adding scrapbook onto my newly created floor plan.

I am using Sketchup Pro 2022 Trial.

I have created a floor plan as part of my assignment… I am doing my assignment for reflected ceiling plan (RCP) for lighting. There was a lighting symbols that was given for my assignment, however it seems this file is older version.

There are two files that I am having issues.

  1. Module 4 base plan- BACK UP - I created from scratch from Sketchup Pro 2022

  2. Lighting symbol which was given to me for my assignment - There was instructions about how to add this onto scrapbook and I did add this, the scrapbook was there when I open this file. But the scrapbook does not show on my module 4 plan even I have already added.
    When I have my Module 4 base plan opened, I tried to go ‘‘file - open - lighting symbols’’ it does not allow me to open that file. It says ‘‘error reading…’’
    When I tried again, it comes up with the screen that I am not allowed to start a new file…
    I am so confused, and don’t know what to do.

I need to finished my RCP plan using the newly created floor plan, so I need to get the symbols onto scrapbook under the file that I am using. Can someone please help.

Please help.

Look for ‘Scrapbooks panel’ in LayOut, not in SketchUp (as in your photo).

Send your SketchUp model plan to Layout.
