I'm trying to create my summerhouse sketchup design and have created a number of layers (e.g. a layer for the base, floor, each wall and one for the roofplate). I have used components and a few groups and copied and assigned components between layers but then made them unique. hopefully the example file (frame of the summerhouse) will explain my problem....https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B23Hn0 ... sp=sharing
the file should open with all layers visible. if you hide the 'wallplate' layer, the top timbers (the wallplate) disappear (as expected). If this layer is made visible again and the 'wall-window162cm' layer is hidden then the wallplate (and other items apparently assigned to other layers) disappear even though the entity information says they are not in the hidden layer.
I have done some googling but only found old posts where it was a known issue in earlier versions (I',m in 2015 free version) where everything had to be first created in layer 0.
I suspect its's because I've copied components, made them unique then assigned to another layer...but what is the correct way to do this and is there any easy way to fix my current issue?
