Views are Repositioning in Layout 2023 On Their Own

The views are losing their references and repositioning in Layout 2023.

Here is the view before updating the model:

Here is the view after updating the model.

We have to lock our views to keep this from happening, at which point the view
will no longer reference the sketchup model at all.

Why is this happening? How do we make this stop?
Any help would be appreciated.

Can you share the file? Otherwise it’s hard to know what’s going on.

Hi @1bigmig1,

This has been brought up in other forum posts, but there is currently a bug with the camera position being reset on model update with perspective cameras using the “preserve scale” feature. See this post for more info:


I thought it was already fixed, I usually don’t use perspective views on my layout documentation.

No. It’s not fixed.

This is causing me a lot of issues trying to deliver my final set of Construction Drawings.

I have updated to latest version this week and was hoping it would be fixed.

Is this getting the attention it deserves at HQ?

It is getting attention. The last release was for security updates, nothing more. Hopefully soon another release with come with the fix.

Hi guys, I am having the same issue, for example when setting a scene, using a specific eye view, and then adding a different elevation with the same eye view height, when working on layout the views change. That doesnt happen on any of the previous layout versions.

This is just an example, but both scenes elevations where set on the same eye view height. I hope my post makes sense.

This is not a small thing. It is a constant stumbling block when trying to deliver work. And we all know what that means.

Why not just disable the camera settings for the viewport. The other properties (Style/ Tags/geometry changes ) still get updated, just not the properties you want to NOT update.
