Alright. You haven’t done several things I asked you to do.
First go back to the SketchUp file and do the following.
- Set the camera to Parallel Projection.
- Select the appropriate standard view that lets you see the panel straight on.
- Select the entire panel.
- Right click on it and choose Zoom Selected.
- Create a scene for this view.
- Save the changes to the SketchUp file.
You need to have a scene for the view before you go to LayOut. Using Last Saved SketchUp View for your viewports creates all sorts of problems.
Next in LayOut:
- Right click on the viewport and choose Update Reference.
- While the viewport is selected, go to the SketchUp Model window and select the scene you created in the Scene: drop down.
- If needed, you can drag the edges of the viewport to change the size of it and you can select a scale that is appropriate by clicking in the Scale drop down.
Do not double click on the viewport to open it for zooming or otherwise changing the camera position. Doing so will modify the viewport and disconnect it from the scene in the SketchUp file which again will cause you problems later.
- Once you have the viewport sized as needed to show the entire panel on the page, tick the box labeled Auto next to the Render button. This will make the viewport render as Vector since you have Vector selected.
The reason for the viewport still looking like it does is because you have Auto Render turned off. The yellow triangle with the ! indicates the viewport needs to be rendered to show the updates.
Again, avoid using Last Saved SketchUp View. Create scenes in the SketchUp model and use them for the viewports in LayOut. Avoid doing anything to make the scenes show as modified in the scenes list. And usually you’ll want to leave Auto Render enabled.
