Material names below the material thumbnails

I wish the material names will be visible in beneath the material thumbnail!


If you place the cursor on a color or material and keep it there for a second or 2 you get a pop-up stating the name of the color or material.

Thanks…yes I know. But seeing it instantly will be very handy!

Yes this would be great! Perhaps even options for list view, thumbnail view, thumb with names.

There’s already List View and Thumbnail view options, at least on PC.

Wow, really jealous. Don’t have that on Mac that I can find…? i really wanna be wrong and just not be looking in the correct place. I see no options anywhere:

What’s under the Color dropdown? I gave up on SketchUp on Mac almost a decade ago and don’t remember.



LOL yep, that captures it perfectly.

no, the mac panel does not have a list mode. also, it’s not alphabetical, it’s chronological.

because it’s the default Apple panel. still.

One more good reason to unify the mac version with the PC one :slight_smile:


I’m working on a PC and I actually always use Listview. However, sometimes, in large models when I use the picker tool I have to click two times before I see the material name. This can be more efficient and can be implemented easily I think.


For MAC users I wrote a tool to list the materials by name in a separate dialog - about 9 years ago…
