some advice please:
I do some changes to a scene in Sketchup ie. to change the tags visible in that scene. I probably zoomed or panned some when doing that, and then I update the scene to save those changes.
In Layout the scene has then reflected my zooming and panning, and suddenly my floorplans position on the page needs to be adjusted to show my original content.
How can this be a useful feature? I get that in a 3d view you might want to adjust your perspective in a sketchup scene, and have that reflected in Layout, but for a plan view in Layout, when I have “ortho” set, and a plan view, and a set scale, why would anyone want to update their scope of the drawing in sketchup, and then have that update change what you see in your viewport in Layout? It seems to me that this is a result of viewports being originally meant mostly for 3D content, while, if you use Layout mostly for documentation drawings, this is a “not wanted” behavior. Could Layout just ignore zooming and panning of the Sketchup scene when updating 2D scenes?
I guess I could just “Lock” the scene, or put it on a locked layer, but then I cannot update it to show my intended changes…
If I wanted my viewport to show just a portion of my plan view, I would adjust my viewport borders accordingly, in Layout, and expect that viewport to always show the same content until I change the viewport borders or zoom.
I guess I could have all 2d content on locked layers, and just go to a page with 3d content, and update the model from that viewport. But that does not seem like a well crafted workflow.
