My friend @DaveR probably I am very stupid cause I didnt understand what the “drag” you say mean. I really dont understand. Let me tell you how I usually create a circle:
- I find the place where I want to put the center of the circle;
- I click the CIRCLE tool (in the toolbar)
- I click right where I want the center of the circle to be;
- I type 5mm (if I want a 5mm radius circle);
- I press ENTER.
If I want to have a “shell”, I create another circle (bigger) and delete the inner part of the inner circle, so I am left with a shell.
This procedure is very intuitive and I think most people use it. If sketchup cant handle this basic usage it surely is not doing a good job. But anyway, for now I am stuck with Sketchup, so how should I create this circle without using offset? And if I have to use offset, I now how to use it, but I dont know what do you mean about the axis! Sorry for my ignorance and thank you for your pantience my dear friend!
OBS1: I think the default is 28 or 30 segments in my Sketchup. Of course if I use more segments I will make a much rounder circle but I dont need that precision. 28 or 30 segments is good to me.
OBS2: I dont know if I understood correctly what you said but if instead of typing a value to the radius of th e circle I drag the mouse in some axis (like the red one) my circle ends up the same as if I drag another circle in a random orientation! See the file I attcahed again, I did 2 circles exactly as you told me. Maybe your circle looks better than mine cause your sketchip is using more segments by default. If this is the case, this is indeed a bug cause it only looks to happen with few segments (I dont think 28 or 30 is few, is a lot for most situations I face).
