Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video References, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut.
- So we're in chapter 6-05 and we're going to look…at references because SketchUp and LayOut are linked.…You can also insert text files and…insert image files as well into LayOut for laying out.…There are a couple ways in which it deals with the…SketchUp file depending on whether you sent it…from SketchUp or you've inserted it.…Now normally you'd want to insert content into a…preconfigured sort of template file.…So sending it from LayOut won't give you that option.…
Every time you send a drawing from LayOut…it will open up a new file and that could be a template file…but it doesn't allow you then to insert that content…into the same drawing as other content…unless you cut and paste it from one to the other.…So it's kind of convoluted.…So the best way of doing it is to go…File and Insert.…This is already inserted.…I'm going to insert this one…which is called Reference1.…And that is going to sit inside my LayOut sheet.…
Now the beauty of having inserted content is…I can double click this and move it around…and zoom in, zoom out.…
