Ok. I’m reacquainting myself with sketchup after some years of being away. So I’ve got some questions to pepper you with.
One of my greatest frustrations then, and now, is the seeming arbitrariness of using the ruler to resize and object. Hit the control key to put a little + symbol next to the ruler and then chose two points? Works sometimes. Sometimes not. Select the object and explode? No help. Make the object a group or component. No go. Just seems to pop up the box asking to “resize the object” at random… when I’m lucky enough to get it.
Trying to simply use the ruler to measure or lay down a guide line? 95 percent of the time it works just fine. 5 percent of the time the ■■■■ little window opens asking if you want to resize the object and NO amount of reattempts stops the window from opening… and getting in the way of actually measuring or laying down a guide line.
What am I missing?
