Having to select and delete is a nuisance. Is there a way to deselect this feature so I don’t have to take my time to delete this?
Make your own template without him. Start a new SketchUp session, delete him and then in Window>Model Info>Statistics click Purge Unused. Then use File>Save as template to save it as your own template.
While you’re at it you might want to make changes to the style. I prefer a white background, Profiles set to 1, and use a green color for back faces. Also turn off Length Snapping in Model Info>Units and choose the appropriate units for what you’re modeling.
Where do I save the new template in Sketchup?
When you use File>Save as Template it’ll automatically save into the correct Templates folder. This isn’t something you can change.
Awesome! Thank you so much. I have been using this for some time, and always have to change model info to decimal and delete the image. Grateful for your help! You are an asset to the community!
Making your own templates for both SketchUp and LayOut should almost be the first lessons for the programs.
SketchUp comes with several blank decimal and metric default templates.
You can actually save your template anywhere. I have a SketchUp standards folder that contain multiple SU-folders of my own standards including my SketchUp Templates.
Instead of opening SketchUp from scratch, you simply open the file, then “save as” to your project folder. Templates are simply a SU file. Same with LO, so they can be saved anywhere on any drive. I never start a SketchUp session by opening the program first. I open the file which opens the program by default.
To expand on the comment by @Sonder:
If you opt for his method you will use the regular Save and save the file to your custom templates folder not Save as Template.
To expand even more: I keep my templates and other files related to the materials, textures, etc. in the My Documents folder where it gets backed up regularly.
I use the default locations for templates, styles, components, and materials. These folders also get backed up regularly.
My SketchUp standards folder contains lots of things too making it very large in size. It contains my custom materials folders, templates for both SU and LO, thousands of SU details and all my scrapbooks which include my detail scrapbooks. I like having everything SU in one place, but it needs to be off the operating drive which does help performance (less so now with my very large SSD).
Thanks all for the responses. I was able to get this done with Dave’s help. Thanks much to the community!
