I hope this is the right forum. I think I have a fairly simple question. Please point me to any tutorials that might be available.
I am relatively new to SketchUp, and I am trying to use it personally to plan a kitchen upgrade. I am using the software on two computers (Win8.1 and Win10), one a desktop, one a laptop. I am struggling with keeping the information synchronized. For example:
I downloaded a “cabinet” from the warehouse on one computer and defined a “color” that I want to apply to the cabinet. Then I saved the model, went to the other computer, and thought that when I open the model, it will have the same information. Not so. The color was not there. How do I transfer that? And what else do I need to transfer to make the switch between computers seamless?
Another thing is: How do I know which model I downloaded? Say, I work on this, and then I want to download the model again, Is there a record somewhere that tells me what I downloaded? When I go to “Entity info” it does not tell me what the file or collection was that I took that from. Did I miss that?
And finally, I saw some collections in the warehouse that seemed to have a lot of different cabinets (in this case), which I thought I could use. But then it loaded the whole “collection” into my model, and I can’t figure out how to break that up into the individual pieces (as I am not going to need all). “Explode” didn’t work. So how do I load a collection of multiple items into sketchup and then select a single item to use?
