How do I resize a viewport in LayOut without changing the size of the objects in the viewport?

No matter which handle I grab and move, the objects in the viewport scale up or down accordingly. All I want to do is enlarge the viewport; right now, one of the objects isn’t shown totally. This is for a dimensioned drawing, and I really don’t want to have to redo all the dimensions because the objects changed size.

Hi David.

Click on Preserve Scale on Resize in the SketchUp inspector window.

If you only need to change the horizontal dimension of the viewport, you could hold Command while dragging a side resize handle.

Got it. Many thanks.

I need to resize a viewport without stretching the content.

The option is only available to check if you have the viewport selected…
