Since I updated to SU 2018 I am having a problem with Layout. When I render a model in Hybrid mode my Leader text disappears as well as my dimensions.
Interestingly my dimension lines appear, just the measurements are gone. If I switch to either of the other two render modes the text and dimensions reappear.
Can you upload a sample LO file that demonstrates this?
I uploaded the layout file with the file embedded and also the source file and the copy of the layout file that references it.
A couple of possibilities although remote
- I have pulled in a component from my 2017 library to my sketchup model.
- I am using a template origanlly created in 2017 as well asan embedded logo file.
A colleague of mine is also having the same problems. She too is using old components / templates.
We are both running Pro versions.
I love the software - it keeps getting better. I think I still have my original disk from @lastsoftware from when I started using it!
Any insights are appreciated.

About to leave for home. I’ll look when I get home.
I did find a problem with your SketchUp file. Evidently there’s something located at a great distance from the origin. Hitting Zoom Extents makes it appear as if your model has been erased. I copied the plan and dimensions to a new file to fix that issue but I see the same problem with the dimensions and text.
I’m not sure what the problem is with your dimensions and labels, though. I deleted them and replaced them (some of them) and I have no problem getting them to show in LO rendered in Hybrid or Vector.
To be honest, I thought your dimensions and text were inserted in LayOut, not in SketchUp. I would suggest that you add those entities in LO anyway.
Wow - I am still stumped. I tried to recreate the error by adding one element at a time and the zoom extents didn’t jump to infinity.
I will heed you advice and do my labeling and dimensioning in Layout.
The fact that the file, if saved in 2017 will render properly. I didn’t check to see what happens with zoom extents in the earlier version.
I just saved it in 2017 - same problem with zoom extents. I erased one layer at a time and it was my boxes layer that was causing the problem for some reason. This layer was simple a trace of the outline saved as a group and put on its own layer.
