Not sure why this happening recently

Can someone explain why this is happening to my drawing? This is new and when I have my drawing on a angle as shown it’s splits the screen. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. This is Sketchup Go

That’s because the PDF is larger than the paper the printer will handle. Try reducing the size.

Thank you for that. When I did reduce the size of the image it didn’t seem to help. When I don’t have the image on an angle and you’re looking straight at it, that seems to fix it. It’s odd because this has not happened before no matter how the drawing was angled.

Share the SketchUp file so we can see what you’re working with.

What operating system are you using? Your profile says ‘2023’ but that’s not the answer to the question. What internet browser?

I am using Windows and Google Chrome.
Here is a link to the image straight on. I did make this quite small and that did correct the problem.
It’s just a bit too small. Sorry I was still playing with the image size after I send my reply.

Please correct your forum profile.

I asked for the SketchUp file.

Unfortunately, I don’t have this saved in Sketchup. I was going to attach another drawing but
I don’t seem to have that issue on some other drawings.

You never saved that model file?

It was saved yes, Once we get the sale for our products, I usually delete the files on my account. I’m quite new to using Sketchup (obviously) and haven’t found the best way to keep all of my drawings. I am not sure if that makes sense. I don’t seem to be able to save the drawing in a sketchup to my device only in my Trimble account.

I guess I wouldn’t delete projects just because you’ve gotten a sale for it. You might have to go back and make updtes or it might be that with some simple modifications, you can repurpose the model for another customer. That could save you a lot of work.

You can download the file to your device. Click on the menu button in the upper left corner of the model area and click Download.

If you have to present your models to customers or create shop drawings you might find it worthwhile to upgrade to SketchUp Pro so you also have LayOut. With LayOut you can create better looking documentation for export to PDF.

You are very right and I appreciate you letting me know how to save this to my device. I will start to do so as yes, this will save me more work in the future.
I am currently on a trial for the Pro version but haven’t spent too much time on it as of yet. I appreciate the advice and help.
