I was previously using the Sketchup Web version and was able to right-click on a face to select “Texture” and then move the green placeholder to reorient the direction of the woodgrain. However, I’m using Pro now and I seem to have lost this function. Can anyone help? THANKS!
The feature works the same way in SketchUp Pro. Two possible problems. Either you applied the material to a group or component container instead of to the faces inside or the surface you are right clicking on is made of more than one face. As in the web-based version, the texture position option is only available when the material is applied to faces and when you right click on a single face.
This is in 2020.
Actually, I think I may have a clue to this problem…
I’m applying the texture to a CYLINDER (round) surface rather than a flat plane. Would that limit my ability to reorient the direction of the material’s texture?
