Getting started w SHOP

Aarrrggghhhh! Let’s see: frustration, lost patience long time ago, general pissedness, angry, this has to be someone (else’s) fault,

       feels like it aught to be a song, eh?

I bought SU SHOP yesterday. I’m not sure that is the software that opens on my set:

Does SHOP have an icon or some sign that is really is SHOP? (not freeby Web)
Where is my TOOL PALETTE?
Can I make a group/component without the EDIT tool? Some other way to subtract one solid from another? “This is not a solid” is a comment I’m not appreciating

SketchUp Shop is the Web version with additional tools and file format filters and the right to use it commercially.

This video will show you the differences between the desktop version, that has the tool palette and the menus, and the web version, that is laid out in a different way:

As for whether you’re getting the Free version or Shop (with the solid tools and other extras), that only depends on which email address you are signed in under. As long as you are signed in with the same email you use in the forum, you should see the Shop features.

Thanks Anssi,

Should a Tool Palette be showing? Not the side bars.

Thanks, Knapp

The basic UI is the same between Free and Shop but the Free version will have a watermark in the upper right corner of the screen. You’ll also find that with Shop you don’t get prompted to buy it when you select the Solid Tools or try to edit a material or style.

No, not the same as desktop version.

The tools are down the left hand side:

and other settings are on the right

If you are signed in to Shop rather than the Free Web version, you will NOT see a watermark on the top right of the modelling window.

But after midday in UK. by which time April Fool jokes are traditionally barred - so genuine info…

Well, learning is fun, even with the frustration.
And that’s no joke!
