WHY. Can I not pull a dimension to the apex (or any point) on an arc?
Also, why is right click “erase” next to right click “hide”?
Sketchup support responded:
Why are these problems. Use Layout.
I persist: Why even have the dimension tool if it doesn’t work well? Sometimes I just want to export a quick shop drawing without transitioning to another program. It’s unreasonable that the dimension tool should not be able to interact with arcs at all. Especially since the arcs are actually polygons. I can see the segment ends, but can’t snap to them.
The hide/erase proximity is problematic because they both have the same apparent effect - the thing disappears. If you realize you’ve clicked the wrong one, ctrl-z no problem, but if you think you’ve hid an object, continue to work, and then go to unhide it, but it’s gone, you have a problem.
And without an actions history a la autocad, you have to rely on the last saved version, which could be much further back than you want to go.
This isn’t reddit; you’re tech support, and all you’ve done so far it tell me that my problem isn’t real, and that I’m not a legitimate customer.
I’m glad this works on your computer. It doesn’t on mine. My racetrack is extruded, and has texture, but that’s the only difference.
Now, I can work around this, as I do many janky things that happen, even in pro '23, but I thought maybe someone else was having the same issue, and that it could be improved, for everyone’s benefit. “ProSupport” suggested I post something here. Clearly that was a waste of time.
this is not tech support. this is a community forum run by regular people.
In essence, this is reddit. At least it works like reddid. Although some of us here work for SketchUp, the overwhelming majority of us don’t.
As DaveR said in his first post, it’s easier for us to help you if you provide an example of your problem.
Without it, it’s all just theoretical.
So yeah, Considering the info you provided and the infos in your profile, DaveR’s answers are sound.
