Layers between SketchUp and Layout


Continuing the discussion from Scenes are not updating:


I liked the answer above - right on target. But FYI and for later reference, the layers in Layout function as in a 2D CAD program. They are stacked and rearranged as needed. However, it is not possible to move any specific elements of the Sketch Up model to different Layout layers. The entire model comes into the viewport and the viewport can be placed on a layer. In addition the scenes made in SU will come into viewports and these viewports can be placed on separate pages or even separate layers.
Hope this helps to further the discussion. Each page in Layout can have its own set of layers and usually the scene viewport is brought into the page and then the viewport is assigned a layer and locked to prevent any interaction with the scene or the model within the viewport. Hope this make sense.
