SketchUp for iPad problem - image inserted as object not showing in AR mode

Hi. Any advice greatly appreciated.

I am trying to add an image to my SketchUp for iPad model so that it appears in AR mode in a similar way to a poster or picture on the wall would do in real life.

I have tried inserting the image as an object, and in the model (before activating AR mode) it appears as I would want it to. However, when I activate AR mode and move around to the area of the model where the image is, it does not appear there at all. Is there something I am forgetting to do? Or something I need to do to make it visible in AR?

I have managed something like what I am trying to achieve by inserting the same image as a texture, but it doesn’t give me the control over scale and form that I am looking for to be able to use the AR function as a useful tool with my clients.



I’m not sure why an image doesn’t appear immediately in AR mode. You can select and then Explode the image, then it will work.

Thank you very much Colin. Exploding the image works for me!
