So suddenly in my model, on all the 10+ Scenes I set up, most everything is hidden and I have to go into each of the groups and do a Unhide All to see them,
I just exported a image from a Scene, now if I go back to that Scene, about 3/4 of the objects are Hidden, so what the heck? How did all those things in the different groups get hidden? I didn’t open up each group and hide the things in it.
In the meantime, you could try this: select a scene, DON’T change the camera view in any way, Select All, Unhide All, then Update Scene. Navigate away from the scene and back again. Does it still happen?
I am assuming here that you don’t have anything that you want to stay hidden…
No Dave, I haven’t been using hide instead of using layers. I was setting up a few pages and exporting images, after exporting an image went back to another scene and everything was hidden, inside of groups.
this has happened to me a time or two before with different models.
I’ve downloaded and opened your model, and saw that the first few scenes do hide most objects. So, I simply told it to unhide them, right-clicked on the scene, and selected Update. This fixed the issue you’re experiencing.
It seems you just created a scene that had the items hidden. You just need to unhide them and update the scenes. Cheers!
I somehow got the impression that @JoeFromSDiego never used the ‘Hide’ operation within any group’s environment. So I think the question still remains unanswered?
To @JoeFromSDiego. You’ll most likely benefit from naming your groups with sensible/logical names instead of “naming” (most of) them just group. Not that it is related to your ‘hide’ issue for a fact, but who knows, it could be. As a side effect, named groups would make managing and investigating your model a lot easier.
You really intended for those hundreds of extra markings and pieces to be viewable on every scene? If so, the fix is still the same: go to each scene, unhide all, and update scene. Should be good to go.
If SketchUp really is hiding most of your model selectively for each scene, then that would be a bug. I’ve never heard of this before, though.
That’s a 3 year old model of a slightly larger pavilion I’d already designed, I designed this new design and only set up a few pages for it so far, all the other pages, and 3/4 of the pieces, are from the older model I just hadn’t deleted the unused stuff yet,
