I’m just learning how to use dynamic components. Perhaps I’ve misunderstood how they should work, but I was under the impression that modifying the “Component Options” should be possible without SketchUp forking a new component. For example, I have a dynamic component with an attribute that controls its colour. If I make a duplicate of this component and change this option for one of them, SketchUp automatically creates a new component, so if I then make any changes to the underlying structure of one of these components, those changes aren’t reflected in the other.
Am I expecting too much of SketchUp or is there something I’m doing wrong? Ideally I want to be able to change an attribute via ‘Component Options’ (such as colour) but have the underlying components remain linked.
