Some point to points show the correct scale, others are full scale and I’m unable to change those scales in the drawings. I’ve attached a screen shot to show the results.

Just guessing: Your SketchUp Model dialog shows “None” in the Standard View field. Are your problem scenes using Perspective projection instead of Parallel, or are they somehow slightly skewed?

Great solution. I went back to the scene and Aligned View that wall and when I inserted that Scene the dimensions scaled correctly. However the Standard View field remained at None. Don’t know exactly why but it worked. Thanks.
