Im using SketchUp Make 2017 on MAC. in I was working In the model and I clicked something and It looks like my model view is astronomically far away. It still shows my model entities so the model is there but Ive tried everything. Please help!
OK, glad you have a temporary solution.
I tried making it a component and importing to new file - same issue
tried copy paste - same issue
tried selecting your core model and then shift selecting to inverse and delete same issue.
One interesting thing is that if you put the model into wireframe mode - then zoom extents works as expected.
So maybe its a face somewhere? but I cant find it.
The snippet is indeed just for the active drawing context. It would be quite simple though to iterate the model DefinitionList and affect all contexts Another improvement would be to try to reset the text position to (local) origin, rather than deleting, so users can still read the text and manually place it anew where it was intended to be.
I haven’t the time myself at the moment but someone could make a plugin for this.
One way around the distant objects problem is to zoom out enough to see everything you want to keep, select those things and do a Cut, Select All, Delete, Paste in Place. That should fix zoom extents, but it leaves you wondering what the distant objects were.
In the 2019.2 update there is an Invert Selection option. You could select what you want to keep, invert selection, then look at the Outliner panel to see how many things are highlighted. Select one at a time, Cut, Paste while zoomed closer to the origin, and you should see the offending item.
In older versions you could still do a Select All, shift-select (to deselect them) the things you want to keep, and the offending items will be selected in the Outliner panel.
I just did a zoomed selection of everything in my model, of what I was eager to keep, + did a fast copy paste of it all into a fresh new SketchUp file. It solved my zoom extent issue right away. I had no text bug in my model after all.
