Sketchup 2019 Feature Requests


#284

this could be achieved if arrow key ‘Flip Along’ functionality was added to the ‘Select Tool’ active selection…

i.e. Select ‘object’ >> Up Arrow for Flip Along Blue, etc…

I don’t think flipping is within the responsibilities of the Select Tool. These are commands you can use regardless of active tool.

@eneroth3 That vaguely makes sense. I don’t know much of the inner workings of SU … I just picture it being all Rubyish. Do you think this could be achieved with a Ruby script?

As I posted previously: Which shortcuts show in Preferences/Shortcuts seem to depend on what is selected. I wonder if this points to a mechanic that could be used to have separate arrays of shortcuts.

edit: I made a keyboard macro for Flip Axes: e.g. Fn + W / A / S each execute three separate SU commands: Flip item / group / component along blue / red / green. I made the macro with my keyboard software but it could also be done with AutoHotkey (win) or maybe Karabiner on macos.


#287

I use F2, F3, and F4 for flipping components along their axes and add Shift for flipping loose geometry or multiple components along the model axes. Since I have no use for groups in my workflow, I didn’t bother creating shortcuts for flipping groups but they can certainly be added. I don’t see any problem with the way it works, at least in my modeling.

Cursor keys are left as mapped by default


#288

My most wanted SU 2019 feature is SU 2019 itself.

Come on Trimble Team - maybe we should start “Sketchup 2020 Feature Requests” topic? This one started November '17 :slight_smile:

Over&Out.
