When attempting to use the Rotated rectangle tool with the following sequence:-
1 click start point
2 drag along any axis (I’m starting with simple example)
3 enter length (VCB)
4 press ENTER (this works as expected and ‘protractor’ changes to conform)
5 drag to establish direction and approximate angle (at this stage VCB shows:- angle,~length and the screen dialogue shows angle, length, width)
6 press ENTER
however end results are either
- a rectangle of original length BUT with a width of the same value as I entered for the angle. (This is reported in the VCB with the original length and my input angle as the second value) I can resize using the VCB, but this does not seem to be what the tool is meant to do as it requires additional input.
- no rectangle with “Invalid input entered”
(I have tried the input in both 45,200 and 45.0,200 with no different result)
I have watched the video and downloaded the PDF, but cannot establish a method from either of these.
The topic posted on Jun 16 does not really relate to my problem.
I am using Sketchup make 2017 and never tried the Rotated rectangle in 2016.
I’d really appreciate some comments, I don’t know how showing any examples would help the explanation, as obviously I’m missing some key point.
