How to add Cubic Feet to Entity Info - it used to be there


#1

I’m trying to figure out cubic volume “easily”. It used to come up automatically in the Entity Info box when a group was highlighted. Why can I not see it in SU 2015 Pro?


#2

Volume does show, but only if the group is a solid.


#3

Leave even the tiniest edge and the Solid magic goes away.


#4

The volume will be shown with the unit choosen in the model preferences…


#5

no it is gone…

even if I create a box and group it, it does not show up…soooo frustrated


#6

Is this SketchUp Pro 2015? I can’t see it and used to be able to…sooo frustrated!


#7

Post a screenshot similar to to the one I did. We’d like to ‘see’ what’s going on.
BTW … Mac or PC ?

I recently upgraded to SketchUp Pro 2015 MAC, I’ve been using 2013 and for a short time 2014. In 2014 I noticed I add plug-ins to make this work, so frustrated, because I am close to finishing plans and only updated because I wanted to use some rendering software

Geo,

My apologies…just getting used to this Forum stuff here.

I just replied all, but not if you, so I don’t know if you get notified?

I’m not familiar with the Mac/SU GUI.
Does the shaded corner mean the Entity Info box could be expanded further?



#12

that is just my default color


#13

no that is just a horizontal window adjustment button. it allows you to grow the box


#14

Growing the box doesn’t help?


#15

it is what you use to make the entity window get bigger or smaller in size horizontally. it does not allow you to expand it vertically and show more options


#16

Just for fun, try…
SketchUp → Preferences → Workspace → Reset workspace


#17

no luck, just did and tried it earlier too


#18

I used to be able to soooooo easily check the cubic ft of a slab, or concrete wall - not anymore


#19

If that doesn’t fix it, see @Tommy ‘s and @Jeff ‘s posts

I did all the above - no result. Still no volume result in the entity window. I also reinstalled SU 2014. This sucks, any help would be fantastic…Ive got to get these plans done now!
