I’ve searched the forums and this topic has been discussed, but I’m still struggling. I want to create shapes (like rectangles) and then edit for precise dimensions. Here’s the steps I’m following and the hang-up:
- Select rectangle tool.
- Click mouse at start point and let go.
- Drag mouse to approximate dimensions close to what I want (it’s really hard to get exactly on with too much moving around).
- Click mouse again to create the shape.
- Click in the dimensions box at lower right to type in dimension = FAIL. That box will not let me type in it. I’ve clicked in it, double clicked, and even used my tab key to highlight it. I can’t type there to change the dimensions.
So, is this an issue with SketchUp Free web-based? As in, you can only type dimensions on paid products. Or, is it a browser issue? I’m using Google Chrome.
