This has occurred in Sketchup, not Layout.
Yesterday I was working on a laptop with dual monitors and granted this laptop needs to be upgrade.
However, today I have been working on a totally different … desktop machine with more than enough specs to run SK efficiently and the same issue occurred.
However, when the pc is restarted and once in the drawing … zoom extents is activated … orbit around, the issue seems to be resolved.
I have been taking some old cad symbols of people etc and converting them to 2D SK symbols, as we know these old symbols have more lines than required. To “clean” up a bit, I have used the following plugins:
- Architects tools - Flatten Selection
- Edge Tools2 - Simplify selection & Close edge gaps
- 2D tools - fillet & 2D adjust
When one does this for a while then one is not able to select just by pointing at a surface or edge… and selection only works with including or crossing window. Try selecting first the grey area indicated.
Also, you may notice that 3D objects, (boxes on the RHS of the image below), are not correctly displayed, almost as if they are not closed off or surfaces missing or hidden.
I enclose the drawing to demonstrate. When the drawing is opened first try to select the grey surface or the symbol… then only zoom extents.
systemCheck.skp (6.6 MB)
Due to file size limitations was not able to upload the full drawing.
Thank you for your kind attention.
