I am a novice with SketchUp but am trying to draw a house we are building so we can plan the garden, some external wood and generally to have play. I am copying the architectural plans that the builders gave to us. But… I have a problem.
I created my groups (floor, internal walls, external walls, ceiling / floor, roof etc) and put them on the corresponding layers. I needed to then make changes but for some reason it will not let me group all of the entities together. I am trying to do this with the floor (as I needed to add some architecture that was grouped in the external walls), the floor was already a group so I exploded it, put the floor and the external walls (I exploded this too) on Layer0 (saw that on another question and thought it was the light-bulb moment!), re-selected and then tried to regroup them all together.
So in the left picture I have selected everything, then I go to make a group and it only puts some of the entities into the group, like the picture on the right:
I have tried lots of different things, I exploded all of my groups thinking some of the entities we locked in other groups, I tried to find the individual lines in the outliner to see where they were but I couldn’t seem to find them (is there a way to select something and go straight to the location in the outliner?).
I expect then when I try and re-group the other entities on my other layers I am going to get the same situation with the floor. I basically want to group together what I can see on that particular layer, is that possible?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please remember I am a novice so anything too technical I might not understand.
PS. sorry if it is long winded, I just wanted to give as much detail as possible.
