I am sorry to bring the problem again, I have read several threads about the subject, but after a few hours, reading the posts and trying, I am still incapable of the most elementar operation -> drawing a straight line (segment) between two points with known coordinates. (I started with SketchUp just a few hours ago).
I have commuted on and off several time the “measurements”, with view->toolbars->measurements.
I have used “,” and “;” to separate the coordinates, and I have used - and also have not used - [ ].
My “locale” is always EN-US, except if a program changes it. That is the lingua franca for the people I work with and/or are significative. I have even tried the “Ruby Console” thing, to change that. I write in 3 languages (sometimes 4) and that has not been a problem. Win7.
I started with Draw->Lines->Line
As a result I got the pencil icon I can move it using the mouse. It works for freehand drawing,
However I do no manage to type in the coordinates, any coordinates. I have NOT clicked in the “measurement toolbox” (How could I ? I do not find it! ) and typing anything in the keyboard, seems to me, does not cause any effect or change anything I could see.
I am just staring with SketchUp, I have some experience with AutoCAD and microstation, not as a intensive user but like a teacher, a developer and a project tech manager.
Thanks in advance,
