Although Sketchup for Web is definitely a more satisfying experience on a desktop or laptop machine, I have often found myself in situations lately where I want to do some modeling but all I have I’d my 12.9” iPad Pro. When I first tried using it, it was frustrating/disappointing because while you can select tools from the toolbar, you can’t actually do anything with them. You can pinch to zoom in/out but you can’t pan, orbit, draw a rectangle, push/pull, etc. I read somewhere (I think in this community forum) that a Bluetooth mouse could be paired with a iPad Pro and then all those things would work. So I grabbed a Bluetooth mouse and tried it. Yep, it worked. But carrying around my iPad, a Bluetooth keyboard, and a Bluetooth mouse is a little bulky and cumbersome, so I got a nifty folding Bluetooth keyboard that has a trackpad built in. While it’s nice and small when folded, it’s still 2 things I have to carry around.
If an Apple Pencil gives me the capabilities of a Bluetooth mouse — dragging to orbit, draw, bring up the right-click menu, etc. I’d buy one in an instant. I may buy one anyway just to test it, but before I do, I thought I’d check here to see if anyone knows.
