Commonly when this sort of thing happens, it's because the paths led to temporary files that have since been removed in an automatic tidying up by the operating system. How did you create the missing content in LayOut? Copy and paste?

Assuming you still have the original source files somewhere on your computer, select the missing thinf on the page and look to see what is highlighted in References, then hit Relink and search for the file.

Copying and pasting is a lousy work flow because the reference is a temporary file that will be deleted at some point. If you must copy and paste content, you should immediately unlink the file so LO is only looking for the file embedded in the LayOut file. It's best to use have the file saved into a non-temporary directory and use File>Insert to add it to the document. Of course you shouldn't be copying and pasting from SketchUp at all and you should only insert a SketchUp file into the LO project once.

Ok,
So struggling with LO.

Last straw for tonight. I followed your advice, I think. Inserted .jpg images. Then went to document setup, and unlinked them. So they are embedded. If I missed a step please advise.

Also really struggling with LO.

Nothing is intuitive for me. I pick a line weight and it changes as I start to draw. I start drawing with a line, if it touches another the other joins, and takes on the current line attributes. Then I have to cut it apart and reset up each piece. Very frustrated.

Are there any video tutorials on how to create working drawings in this program.
I use Brightman's Condoc. Just in LO need help from a professional that can coach how to use the program. I have Donley's and Sonder's books and have watched their videos.

No one really explains how to use LO.

Dave, I really do appreciate your help.
Thanks
John
