I’ve been working with Sketch up for over 5 years now and I still haven’t figured out how to edit materials on my Mac with SketchUp. I’ve tried navigating the videos and advice here but still can’t make it work for me.
If I want to edit a material (ie: make wood flooring texture darker or lighter, or more saturated) how do I do that on a Mac? The only editing tool I seem to have access to is “opacity”. I’ve tested the advice found her, to fill in the object with the material and then go to “colors in model” and edit from there. But the same basic editing drop-down options appear every time. “Opacity” only.
I’ve tried the droplet tool, or renaming the material in “colors in model”. No luck. For the past 5 years I’ve been editing materials in photoshop and then reloading them under different names. It’s a huge time waster. I just downloaded SketchUp Pro 2020 and I want to start fresh with newly gained knowledge.
So what is the secret? And why is everyone having such a hard time with it? And those who have cracked the code - why doesn’t it work for me!?
