First, why can I not open multiple files using the File menu? I find that I must first load SU each time I want to open another file to have multiple files open at once. After selecting and loading the program, I get the splash screen that allows me to “Start Using SketchUp.”
Second, why is the splash screen necessary ( or is it)? Am I doing something wrong in the way I’m using SU?
Third, I reported having mouse problems and found that I had the inferencing option on rather than off. Changing that has helped but not eliminated the problem. I find that when I click on a tool, it is not always selected. I have to click 2 or more times to select it sometimes. Other times I get a selection on the first click. I also have problems with the cursor jumping when I click to define a point. I suspect these might be vagaries of my old Logitech M510 mouse; however, someone suggested that the problem might be that my graphics card is not adequate for SU. I run the NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT which, while not the latest and greatest, is a reliable 3D graphics card, I think. Should I consider a different graphics card? If so, which one?
Fourth, where can I find basics tutorials for using SU?
Fifth, I downloaded and installed the 2016 Make for 64-bit but the software seems to be installed in the 32-bit Programs library. Is this normal or did I do something (else) wrong?
I’ll stop at 5.
Thank you in advance for all responses. They shall be gratefully received and greatly appreciated.
