Hello, I’ve been using SketchUp for a while, and I am no longer able to print my project to pdf. It looks ok in the print preview screen (once I change the view to print to scale), but when it generates a pdf it looks like half the image has shifted slightly. I’ll try to upload a sample…

This has been reported a few times. Setting the camera to Parallel Projection seems to sort it out but the developers are aware of it and working on a solution.
Your profile says you have SketchUp Pro. You could download the file to your computer and export the PDF from SketchUp or insert it into a LayOut file and export the PDF from there. If you render the model viewport as Vector or Hybrid you’ll also get a better looking result than exporting the PDF from SketchUp for Web.
Thanks DaveR. I used to have a similar problem that Parallel Projection corrected, but now it’s not working for this issue. Hopefully the developers figure it out quickly.
I made a mistake on my profile - I’m actually using Sketchup Go on an annual subscription.
Just wondering if there’s been any progress on fixing this issue. I still can’t print to pdf, and now it’s even affecting old sketches I’ve made in the past. I’m afraid I’m going to have to cancel my subscription if I can’t print anything.
The 2023.1.3 update did fix a number of issues. If you’re not already using that version you can get it here:
Sketchup for Web Colin, for web.
Ok, good point!
Fortunately, I know about the web issue as well.
We have a couple of bug cases about this. I don’t know if they are being worked on yet. @marwanobeidat may be able to say more.
Printing issues are on our roadmap, we will update as we make progress.
Out of curiosity, does your file contain scenes? I’ve definitely seen this happen without scenes, but on files that do contain scenes copying the model geometry into a new file that has never had scenes seems to work most of the time.
As a last resort, Export to PNG may be the best alternative.
No, there are no scenes in my sketch (other than “last print”). I did export to PNG, which works fine - thanks!
I’m still contemplating cancelling my subscription until the issue is addressed though - PDFs are easier to include in my estimation software.
