And then resize the viewport again and place it on the page where I had it before it changed.
Is this happening to anyone else? I am using Windows 11. Tech support is unusually slow to answer today. This layout issue is also a problem for several of my coworkers to the point where most of them are waiting to upgrade to 2023 (Pro version).
There should be no need to double click into the viewport to pan the camera as you’ve done and no need to manually select a Standard View for the viewport since that comes from SketchUp when you select the scene.
I can’t tell you why they are there. They didn’t ask for my input. I can tell you that you shouldn’t need to use them if you’ve set up the scenes in your model correctly. Just ignore it.
Actually the only good reason I can find for manually selecting a standard view in the SketchUp Model panel or doing anything else to modify the Camera in LayOut is for one-off quick things you won’t ever have to go back to. Friday afternoon. Model isn’t complete. Gotta send off something to the client for their feedback. Not even going to save the LO file after exporting the PDF. That kind of thing.
If you use some forward thinking when you are working in SketchUp as well as in LayOut you can save yourself a lot of problems. Plan ahead for the inevitable changes that happen in a project.
