I am having trouble making a component. I have looked at the tutorials and through forums for a solution but none seem to work. sketch up simply will not make a component. I have the same problem on the free web app and the trial version i downloaded.
I select an object and right click and select create component. Place component origin. select create from the dialoge box. image|584x499. It greys out the object i am trying to make a component and a little cube appears on the origin. . if i right click and select close component the object just remains as a series of lines and faces.
can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong.
