Hello Sketchup Developers!
There appears a keyboard shortcut conflict in the web version when using the Scale tool (S). The Toggle Uniform modifier should probably be [ Ctrl + Shift ], because sometimes you type a scaled measurement into that field as the inch symbol (") and that requires the [Shift + "] keys.
I used to select a face and type:
as in, make this distance 10" / out of whatever it currently is.
I can still make some scaled distance into 3’ out of whatever it currently is.
I’d also like to mention that the web version is pretty good. Coming from previous free download versions, I have been impressed with the features that are still available in the web version, even when they were redacted from previous free versions. I get the need to generate revenue.
That said, I think you should offer the use of materials on the web version, simply because it makes Sketchup such an invaluable quick development tool for testing shapes and cladding in 3d, for example. It seems generous to me to be able to use the web version to feel out framing and other assembly, and then pay for the full version to publish construction documents. With the web version, I now find myself copying a bunch of 3d shapes if I’m trying to get a feel for how siding would look if using 1x10’s or 1x6 cedar, and this was extremely fast to preview in simplified shapes with prior versions.
Could a Sketchup Pro for Web version be offered at a lower price? Could it be purchased via installments? Maybe $10 /month?
Thanks, and keep up the good work.
