Previously in SketchUp, the Add Location window used to include arrows (up, down, left and right) which moved the terrain by fixed amount. This made it easier to stitch together multiple terrain grabs to create a larger model. I discovered that by adjusting the size of the add location window, I was able to control the amount of terrain movement when I clicked the arrows. I thought this was an ingenious solution to minimizing my overlaps.
Please view the Sketchfab model below—it illustrates how useful those arrows were in creating large models using minimal terrain grabs. (I hope the model embeds correctly—it should be possible to orbit, pan and zoom in the model. Otherwise it can be viewed here.)
Those arrows have disappeared from the add location window, and I am devastated.
I know the likely cause of their disappearance is access (lack of) to Google Earth API, but I’m not sure. From what I’ve read in the forum, I only see references to the quality of terrain textures and images—no specific mention of those arrows.
Can someone please confirm the arrows’ disappearance? Does anyone know how to bring them back?
Thanks in advance for any and everyone’s help. Apologies for any newbie mistakes, this is my very first post.
