Issue with scenes in 2020 Pro

When I add a scene, 2020 saves it with “X-RAY” view turned on. It shows up this way in the thumbnail too. Turning X-ray off and updating the scene doesn’t change the problem.

Can you share a Sketchup file that exhibits this?

Do you have any extensions that affect styles?

No extensions. This was my first post. How do you load a file?

Assuming it’s not too large you can drag it and drop it into the reply window of click on the Upload button (with the arrow pointing up) along the top of the reply window.

I see what the problem is. The style is set to X-ray and although you’ve modified the style to not show Xray, you haven’t updated it.

When you create a new scene you should be getting a warning telling you the style is changed and asking you what you want to do with it. Do you see that?

Either you need to create a new style or update the existing style with the changes you’ve made. If you choose Do nothing to save changes the style won’t be updated and will show as X-ray.

Interesting. I never set the style to X-ray

It got changed at some point. Easy enough to correct. Click on the large thumbnail with the circular arrows to update. Did you create your own custom template?

yes. Not sure how that got changed…

it’s fixed now. Thank you,

Do you see that warning I asked about when you create a scene with a style that hasn’t been updated?

yes i do

At least you have that going for you. Some folks disable it and create problems for themselves.

I am one of those folks who has disabled it cannot find a way to re-enable the warning message, can you help ?

Window/Preferences/General click the button that says, Reset all warning messages.

Go to SketchUp preferences / General / Reset all warning messages.

You can’t reset just one warning individually unless you edit the preference files.

I’ve tried that but no change i’m afraid.
If you look at my screenshots, I have scene 10 in X-Ray, and i then create Scene 11 and change the style no non xray, then update the scene, but i dont get a message popping up and it also doesn’t retain the change when i move to another scene and then come back to scene 11 ?

Did you save and reopen the model.

Yes its very strange behaviour.
I save and exit, then go back into Sketchup and open the model then click on Scene 11 which is now no longer displaying in xray.
I then click scene 10, which should be in xray and now is not.
I then click scene 9, which should be in xray and still is in xray.
I then click scene 10, which was not in xray before i clicked scene 9, but now is.
I then click scene 11, which was not in xray before i clicked scene 9, but now is.

Your screenshot shows that “Style anf Fog” is unchecked. So your style changes are not saved when you update your scene.
