My typical workflow involves having some VIEW scenes with only the camera saved and then having many LAYER scenes which show only a particular layer. While this still works fine in Sketchup the problem is with Layout. This method lets me cut down on the number of scenes required.
I usually build up a set of plans by inserting a VIEW scene into Layout and then stacking the LAYER scenes in a particular order and style on top of one another, this way everything stacks perfectly even if I choose a different camera angle as the LAYER scenes do not have camera info.
The problem I have with Sketchup / Layout 2017 is that whenever I copy & paste a VIEWPORT onto a new layer and then change the LAYER scene the scale and Ortho button changes and the entity disappears off the page, by correcting the scale and turning Ortho on the entity is not exactly where I would expect it to be.
In short the LAYER scene saved in Sketchup with no camera chooses its own scale etc. in Layout and completely ruins my workflow making the software unusable in addition to the poor anti aliasing support on Mac.
In 365 days the Sketchup team has managed to introduce more bugs than features into it’s product while other FREE software I use, Autodesk Fusion 360 is updated approx every 6 weeks and has come along in leaps and bounds in the same time frame.
