/!\ Access to the "3D text" tool

When I select the 3D Text, the dialog box doesn’t display and Sketchup remains frozen… Does anyone have a solution for this problem ?

It seams the window is off screen.

Follow this guide exactly: After you clicked on the 3D Text icon (or tried opene it from menu)

  1. Hold down the ALT key. Hit SPACEBAR.
  2. Release ALT key
  3. Hit M (Move).
  4. Hit one of arrow keys
  5. Move your mouse around (without pressing any mouse key) until you see the missing window.
  6. Press left mouse button on the desired place

( Note I assume you have English windows otherwise you may need to replace “M” with a localized start letter, e.g. “L” in French)

The dialog box is probably off screen.
There is a trick to move it around untill you can see it again, although I don’t know how to do it myself…
It is usefull to provide your screen(s) setup and if you use a docking station for this kind of problem.
I’m sure someone will step in soon to tell you the trick!
Edit: @dezmo beat me to it!:grin:
