    I worked with Condoc 4 all last year. No problem.

    I started to work on Condoc 5. Problems started to appear.

    First, when I send views to layout, half or all the Sketchup model disappear in Sketchup. I can reset with Condoc and it comes back. But may be not normal.

    Second, after a while working, I just lost the Levels layers. I re-entered the Levels with Condoc. Then I lost the styles of the views created – in Sketchup and Layout. So I erased all views and did all new ones. And it worked, but may something is wrong.

    To try to help, I purged the Sketchup model, and lost all Condoc layers and had to re-entered with reset. Then, lost the style of the views created again.

    Third. The views send to Layout don’t update with new modifications done after in Sketchup. I have to resend the views and doing that, the views update.

    Since few days, on Layout Level 00 Construction plan, roof model appears and cover everything. To solve that problem, I resend any view in Layout, doesn’t have to be that view, and it correct al the views in Layout. But after while, I have to do it again.

    And today, resending the views from Sketchup to Layout, the views don’t update anymore… I have to re-enter a new copy of each view in Layout.

    I would appreciate fast answer. For your information I’m working with Sketchup 2022 on 2 computers, 1 with Window 11 & the other with Window 10.

    Sorry to hear you are having issues with the latest release!  There is an issue with the way the new tagging system works that I would discourage purging tags/layers.  We are working on a fix and will have that out soon…  For now just purge components, styles, and materials through their respective dialogs.

    Can you share the model and layout file?  Have you watched the ConDoc Quickstart tutorials?  Is everything tagged with the new system?  Are you using the ARCHITECT drawing set?

    Hello Mr Brightman Thank for the answer, but did try that before and didn’t change anything and yes I’am using ARCHITECT drawing set. The situation appears on an old project (done with condoc 4) and also new project (done with condoc 5) soon I do any modification on sketchup files it deteriorate the layout view. The mystery accur for some strange reason that I can’t find why. The only way I find to solve the problem is by resending any type of view from sketchup to layout with condoc 5 tools. Then without any other manipulation and not even integrate the new view in layout. All the previous view done in layout is now correct until the mystery reappear again. Did try to create a new sketchup files and layout with the same project and it create the same mysteries

    Yes I could share with to you some file sketchup and layout, it will be my pleasure, but I think, if I could show you on my screen what occur, you will probably understand better than my writing. It’s possible for me to send you a link for a zoom meeting, we will be abble to share my screen. It will take only a few minutes to show you the interesting mysteries. Let me know if you are interesting to do that.

    Yesterday I worked on a project to do some modification in sketchup, I add new wall in basement floor and 3D and 2D stairs in sketchup. Today when I open the layout file of the job, in main floor view and second floor view the new basement walls where visible true the view. I verified my tag everything is ok, I verifed the individual views in sketchup, all view are ok, Update the files in layout, After this the floor plan layout is not correct until I will resend any view, then all views will be correct again until the next time. I will try to send new view later on today. I will create backup files of the project with the situation and the file with the exact step I did to correct the view, to show you.

    I did start with condoc 5 at the beginning of december, without that mystery at the beginning, it starts to appear later on in december, now is in all the files, I can’t trust the view before printing the project, I have to go true all layout views the verified if this situation accur or not.

    Interesting mysteries and I’am open to help if I could  ??
