Hi, trying to draw a scale bar 1:50 but every time i hit the enter key after inserting the 50 it reverts back to choose a scale , and so you start again, hit the enter key and it reverts back again. Any help please would be much appreciated .
So you are pressing Enter after selecting the 1:50 scale in the Scaled Drawing? If that’s it, Enter is finishing the scaled drawing and closing. Don’t press Enter. Select the scale and then do what it says in blue at the top of the screen, start drawing with a drawing tool.
Hi Dave, no, i am using the line tool, entering 50, then pressing enter, at which point it is supposed to save that marker, then continue to draw the line to the point, but it is not saving that point and returning the drop down to choose a scale back to the beginning of the process.
Hi Dave, yes that works @ 1:100 and it actually works @1:50 , its just that i couldn’t see what i was drawing due to the zoom level, don’t know why hitting the enter key starts the whole process again though.
What would be your keyboard strokes to start drawing a scale @ 1:50 or 1:100 ?, trying to determine if it’s me/my settings or my keyboard?
Thank you Dave, you are a Star, i think it’s hitting the enter key which is the problem, in future i am only going to use the mouse and click each point, i watched the Sketchup up guy on youtube Creating a SCALE BAR in Layout 2018 - YouTube and he clearly states hit the enter key?
1 more question if i may please, when i exported my Floor plan from sketchup to PDF/Jpeg ect i saved them as a 1:50 scale, following advice on here from Paul, which worked fine, but what i am not sure about is, what scale if any does Sketchup send that same drawing to Layout in? or have i got to apply a scale some where in Sketchup?
Hi Dave, sorry to be so thick, i send my plan to Layout, but as you can see it wont give me the option to choose a Model, cant work out what i am doing wrong, amazing really that i managed to produce 8 Drawings Ha ha .
