Dimensions, Mesurements

Hi Guys,
When creating a rectangle, i can type in the dimensions, i.e. 400mm, 400mm. but the result on my rectangle is not 400mm, 400mm. but maybe 400,1mm , 247,9mm, the result is not the same every time.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?


Start drawing the rectangle in the direction you want, then let go of the mouse and type 400mm,400mm and hit enter.
Do Not try to click in the measurement box.

Try using a semi colon instead of a comma to separate the dimensions. If you use commas for decimal separators, semi colons are used between the dimensions.

And as Box said, don’t click in the Measurements box before typing. After starting the rectangle just let go of the mouse and type.

Semicolon did the trick … Thanks a lot guys :slight_smile:

Odd for a UK PC, do you have a non standard setup, does the DK mean you are a Dane living in England and have a euro keyboard?

I’m Danish living in Denmark, with a Danish keyboard. new to Sketchup and learning via Youtube videos :slight_smile:

Ah ok, it was the London underground sign in your Avatar that threw me.
