I just want to say that Sketchup is a beautiful program. It is so simple and clean but also very capable.
However, there is one really annoying lack of feature that bothers me. And that feature is the lack of dual level scene tabs.
Essentially, when a file starts to get large it becomes very handy to have over 50 scenes so that i can switch from one scene view to another and be just where i want to be rather than have to constantly pan, zoom, and orbit, three processes than can be very time consuming. Using scenes greatly simplifies this process. However, the fact that the scenes are just a single level linear array makes navigating them very sloppy and annoying when there is too many of them.
So i figured, why not have the usual array of scene tabs, and then within every scene tab you have another array of scene tabs. Its essentially like having a folder within a folder. So you can have like 10 scene tabs, and when you click on one then you get another array of ten below.
So now you can navigate through 100 scene tabs in a very rapid and organized way by clicking on one of the ten scene tabs and then clicking on one of then ten scene tabs inside the selected one. This would be so quick and easy and natural whereas having 100 scene tabs in a single straight line would make navigation extremely slow and disorganized to the point of absurdity.
This feature to me would be fantastic, especially since the Windows version of Sketchup doesn’t allow multiple files to be open within a single Sketchup instance.
Any thoughts anyone?
I hope the developers get a hold of this feature suggestion.
