Continuing a discussion here, still no solution - Layout Model Style Control Issue (still no solution that I’ve seen posted): Whoever is in charge of forum management, why close the post I’m referencing above, or the post that this was orginally continued from if an issue hasn’t been solved? Please keep the posts open until an issue is solved.
Hi everyone. I have seen a post recently between two people I’ve chatted with, seems like from what I read there was no solid resolution or anything solved as to what the problem could be with styles changing on preset viewports in layout seemingly randomly.
I setup a custom viewport overlay, for example I make a layout viewport set to only show the roof above in dashed red, once I overlay that onto the primary layout viewport that represents the main sketchup scene back in sketchup, I go to work on other things. Sometimes when I come back into layout, usually I’ve seen things change when I open layout again, the viewport that I’ve set to show the roof above in dashed red lines in the wireframe style, the style changes. It changes where I see everything as it should be, but instead of looking like a total wireframe, it creates a white fill in everything, dashes stay the same, colour, etc, but now it’s not true wireframe anymore because the contents has a white fill in it making it so that I can’t see the viewport below it (the style on that viewport is different than what I’ve originally set it to).
@DaveR mentions to untick the checkbox for the shadows setting on the effects of the layout sketchup model window. This is not a solution so far for me in my experience or from what I’ve read. Does anyone have any info on this problem? This is a big time waster. While we are at it, layout, it would be great if we could rid of this link between tag visibility and edge styles sometime this year? (Hopefully the next release)…
@paul.mcalenan, has what dave has said in the last referenced above post of yours fixed this issue for you?
