Component copy Problem

Hi, Im having a problems with Sketchup on my Mac, Iv made a component (post) and then copy it so I have two. When I go to add a mortice to the original component its supposed to be duplicated onto my copy. This is not happening. Thanks in advance

Share the .skp file so we can see what you’ve got. I expect the fix is easy.

I will hazard a guess that you aren’t copying the post component but instead you are opening the component for editing and copying the geometry inside it. If that’s the case, you need to not open the component. Single click on it and make a copy of it.

When you single click on a post with Select does the blue bounding box look like the one on the left or on the right?


Thanks Dave. Just tried your answer and it worked. Quite simple really. Happy new year and thanks again
