Hi. I am new to Sketchup. I hope someone can help me.

I am following a you tube video drawing a simple table. I was able to do the legs and the long rails. But when I tried to do the short rails the rectangle i draw appears on the horizontal orientation instead of the vertical. Why and how I fix it?


With 2017 and earlier, the easiest way to control the orientation of the rectangle would be to move the camera so you are looking more straight on at the face you want to put it on. In newer versions you can align the rectangle with the cursor keys.

The cursor keys work with 2017 Make too.
