I am new to Sketchup but I am familiar with other less powerful drawing packages and the issue that I have encountered makes me feel really stupid. I am trying to rotate a box; but when I use the rotate tool in the way describes in the tutorial and in numerous videos on YouTube, all I get are additional Guides. The Rotate tool then snaps to these to create further guides.
I know I am doing something wrongly, but I cannot for the life of me work out what it is (or is it a setting somewhere?). If someone could guide this newbie, I’d be very grateful.
