Orange highlighted text


2 issues trying to solve:

  1. In opening Sketchup model within Layout some of my line-work disappeared. I have since redrawn the line work in Sketchup.

  2. I saved the model again in Sketchup and then referred back to model in Layout and some text in Layout has been highlighted in orange. See included shot.

Anyone have any thoughts on why these issues occured?


That indicates the text needs to be reconnected to the model. Select them, right click on one and choose Reconnect.


Hi Dave

I’m having this problem again and followed your past instructions which solved the issue for some text, but some did not reconnect. Any thoughts on this?


Probably still not reconnected… the notes will still print correctly, even if highlighted in red


if this happens you can select the leader move it out and back in position and it will return to normal.

Thanks will give it try.
