Sketchup to layout issue again

Hi in the past i had isssues with sending to layout ( in that i didnt understand the process.) Now I get it thanks to all support here.

Today however when trying to send in the usual manner to Layout, which generally opens an existing layout document or if not asks you which template to use - none of this happens. ~Instead I get an open layout document with no specified template with no info coming from sketchup.

So far I have tried relinking the model, updated and saved the scene I am trying to view in layout, I have checked in layout model tab that it is indeed the correct model and I am still unable to get the scene I want in layout??

Any suggestions please?

Hi Jo,

In LayOut go to Edit>Preferences>Startup. What is shown? You’ll want Show Welcome Window and Prompt for template selected.

Can you share some screenshots of the Model Panel and your Layout drawing area…?
