I have a project that I’ve started with SU 2018 & ConDoc 4.0 and I’ve used ConDoc to create and export plans, sections, & elevations. I’ve brought this model into SU 2019 & ConDoc 4.5. To take advantage of the new SU vector line styles, do I need to recreate all of these views or are the views and styles automatically updated? If not automatic, is there a easy way to replace the views in Layout to avoid the labor of sizing and reposition the view?
In the 2018 version I followed the ConDoc container method of organizing the model as best I could. Any reason to use the new organizing tool in this case?
The big concern here is that you are on the newest version of ConDoc. 4.0 should link pretty seamlessly with 4.5 and SU 2019 – no need to recreate any views. If your project drawings have changed since you initially created them in LayOut 2018 and ConDoc 4.0, you would just need to update your model in SU 2019, and re-export the desired scenes to LayOut and re-insert them. That would be the easiest way to do it. Unfortunately there is no automatic way to replace/resize/reposition views in LayOut, as they are linked directly to your SketchUp model.
The new Model Organization Guides will definitely help to make sure everything is where it needs to be. If your previous projects/drawings seemed to do what you needed them to do that that’s great proof that you know how the org system works! The MOG are a new tool to help aid in the process, as it can be difficult to someone who doesn’t know how our grouping/layering process works. Give it a try if you want, they’re great to use and helpful, but definitely optional.
