But I still think there’s been a change of some kind. I draw 2d & 3d construction details in Sketchup Pro 2017. Might be a piece of a building, might be a whole building. I insert the Sketchup figure into a Layout page. When I first drop it in, the whole image fits within the “viewport”. However, an example is I may make a Layout doc with multiple pages, & I may drop the same Sketchup model into the different pages. If I double click the model in a Layout page, then move it around changing the camera angle, it is common for the image which initially fit within the Layout page viewport, to now not fit within the viewport and to overlap outside its boundaries.
Before, in previous versions of Layout, ignoring “scale”, I’ve been to control click the model in the Layout viewport, choose “zoom extents”, and the image would fit back within the viewport’s boundaries. That command choice now appears to be gone.
I can accomplish getting the model image back within the Layout viewport’s boundaries by selecting the model, control click, going to scale, & then picking a scale that brings the model back within the boundaries. However, this is not nearly as slick as the old “zoom extents” command that I can’t find anymore, inside Layout.
I use a Mac, SP-2017, a single button Mac mouse most of the time, & a multi-button Mac most some of the time. To get “right click”, I use control-click. This worked for years in earlier versions of Layout to get the “zoom extents”, “pan”, & a couple other commands for the image within the viewport. Double-clicking the model within the Layout viewport still goes straight to camera angle & allows spinning the image. But backing up out of that, & then single control-click the model in the viewport no longer gives me “zoom extents” as an option.
I’ll continue to play around with it & search.
I’m a simple engineer. I don’t do “scenes”, etc in Sketchup. I draw construction details. I may drop the same Sketchup model into Layout multiple times, then change camera angles etc to show different views of the same thing/model. Having to create multiple Sketchup files of the same model, and manipulate each identical model to the desired camera angle, then drop all of them into Layout, so that by default they fit within the viewports boundaries, would be very cumbersome.
I appreciate all advice. If you think of something I’m missing please let me know.
