The first thing I would check is go to the layout, select the view on the layout with the problem and right click on it and select Modify Source View. In that dialog I would select the layer combination you need to have the drawing look like you want.

It could also be the renovation filters possibly.
Check that the view for the drawing you are placing on your layout has the correct layers, model veiw option and renovation filter set.
These can all affect how you plan appears on screen and as they are saved with the views that you use for the drawings on the layouts they can affect what you see there too.

Hi Gigby,

Perhaps the cropped view on the layout is not be centred over the model and is just looking at a blank piece of the floorplan.

Click on the view and check its settings. Look at the 'Frame' tab, and tick 'Fit frame to drawing'. You may need to zoom out on the layout to see the re-sized view.
