Can't bring up right click menu to create new components


using sketchup web on a Mac using firefox. Right click after selecting geometry only brings up four options (view image, save image as, select all, and inspect element). No options for make component ,etc. I can make a new component by pressing “G”…but its annoying i can’t see the darn right click options. Any advice? I tried safari…but safari won’t run cause it won’t save any of my files (gives an error).


Are you right clicking on the selected geometry?


Sounds like you are getting a browser context menu rather than SketchUp’s context menu. A screenshot would help to know for sure.

If that is the case, using another browser could solve the issue.


yes i am right clicking on the selected geometry. I can select the simple cube (for example) geometry…and then press G and it will go right ahead and pull up the make component menu for the item i selected. when i right click…just the browser context menu. strangely enough…sometimes i get the browser context menu over the sketchup menu. will try restart. Also tried using safari and it won’t save. I just get the “sorry we are having trouble looking up your models. Our team has been notified.” message.


Is there an update available for Firefox that you can install?


i am facing the same issue now… any solution?

(i use Chrome)


I’m using Chrome and right clicking on the selection brings up the context menu for me. Is your copy of Chrome up to date?
