Push/pull problems i am facing

Can someone help it is very simple but i want to know why in the first photo i use push pull ± to create the next face but when i draw on the face it doesnt give the line or a new face it just push pull the existing face without diving it:

Can you add the skp file to your next post?

Okay but right now I am going to bed so hope its okay to send it tomorrow .I am using sketchup pro 2023 i don’t understand how when trying to create another face on the surface it just push pull like the second one you see here.

To help achieve your goals, some time spent at the SketchUp Campus and at the SketchUp - YouTube channel will be very worthwhile. Both sites are from the SketchUp team. On the YouTube channel, pay attention to the Square One Series and Level UP series. They cover the basics for each tool.

Okay got it But can you tell me when i draw the exact face like for example like the image above it just push/pull the whole surface and not make a new surface

You need to give us your model for us to be able to see what you are doing wrong.

Tap ctrl so the little + sign appears and pushpull.

Yes But in this video of tutorial he doesn’t do that thats why i am confused .When i draw it on the face it doesnt create a face within the face.

In the video he drew a Rectangle, hence the R key he mentioned, on the outside of a group and then pulled that. It is a very different thing.

Oh got it .Thanks i was wondering why it doesn’t create a new face .Now i know the reason .Thank you sm

Your model is raw geometry, you need to group it for things not to stick together.
