I am fairly new to Sketchup Pro. I am having a couple of frustrating issues with the Dimensions tool… or at least, it is behaving in a way that I don’t understand.
Here is my SKP file.
Here is a video that demonstrates the two issues I am having.
Issue #1 - I am trying to measure the width of a pathway. I can anchor the starting point of the dimension but cannot anchor the other end. I have tried turning on hidden geometry, I have tried to draw a guide point, I have even tried to draw lines to make the dimension anchor. Why can’t I apply the dimension where I want it? (There are numerous other locations on my model like this).
Issue #2 - when I do successfully anchor a dimension between two points, and go to position the actual dimension, very easily the dimension snaps out of line and changes to a different dimension and then I have to escape and start again to get back to my original one. (Video shows this). Why does this happen and how can I revert to the original centered placement of the dimension without having to start again?
Any advice welcome.
