Here’s the issue:
Like most of the world, I work in metric and usually in mm. However, there are times when it is much better to be working in metres. It’s not difficult to change the units in Model Info and back again but it would be handy to have a shortcut that toggled between the two.
On a Mac, you have the option of Services under the Sketchup menu. I believe this enables you to write a small macro that could have a function key as the instigator. This could presumably invoke the Model Info dialog box and change the units. You would also have to change the precision because you don’t generally want precision of greater than 1mm when working in mm but you do generally want at least two decimal places when working in metres. Ideally, hitting the designated function key would swop you back but at worst case you would have to have two separate routines with different function keys. That would also enable you to build in the closing of the Model Info dialog box if you wanted.
Why do I need such a thing? Well, if I want to know the volume of foundation concrete (say), I find it hard reading 9 or 10 digits without any separators and trying to work out where the decimal point should be for reading in metres.
Of course, all this could also be achieved by SU having the alternative metre reading in the Entity Info box, but until then…
Does anyone know how to write the necessary macro? Or even know if it is possible?
