How do I edit measurements in SketchUp Free? I listened and read tutorials and found no instruction regarding this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Sorry, it’s not clear from that screenshot just what you are trying to edit or how.

I don’t know how much prior experience with SketchUp you have, but perhaps you are falling into a common newbie misunderstanding. SketchUp is not a parametric modeler. You can enter the required dimensions while a rectangle is being drawn and can change them until you “commit” by clicking elsewhere or activating another tool. But at that point the original parameters are retained only in terms of the edges and faces that were drawn. There is no “rectangle object” whose parameters you can change. More typing provides inputs for whatever else you start to draw, but the previous is no longer available for input. Instead, you have to activate one of the editing tools, such as move or scale, and manipulate the edges and faces as such.

Its been a long time since I used SketchUp. So yes I am essentially a newbie. Thanks Steve and Dave.
