Brick texture is vertical on two sides of my columns

Hi, Im fairly new to Sketchup and I’m having a problem with my brick texture. I’m using the trial version Sketchup Pro 2022 and working on a windows laptop.

The texture is nice and horizontal on two sides of my columns but horizontal on the other sides. I tried right clicking the face with the wrong position but I don’t have an option to rotate the texture.

If someone can help that would be cool, I’ve been trying to rotate it for about two hours with no luck.

You applied the texture to the group instead of the faces.

Basics of SketchUp at

You will probably have other problems with the texture, because you scaled the groups you made from the outside, and then you didn’t apply it (Scale Definition).

Learn the basics about groups, components and tags (you will work much easier), and for this case, having so many identical repeating elements, you normally use components instead of groups.

Yes thank you! You were right I had also problems with the scales now I swiched all my groups to components instead and it works. Thank you so much!
