Sketchup Pro 2019 solid issues

Hello
My solids won’t stay solid, when I group it shows solid, but when I click away, doesn’t stay solid, any ideas?

thanks

Jeff

Sounds like you have a nest. One group/component nested inside another.
Explode it once and see if it works then. Or look in the outliner and see if one is a branch of another.

thanks for the reply, but if I simply create a simple cube, 6 sided box i have the same issue
thanks

Jeff

A simple cube isn’t a solid until it is grouped. Once grouped it should remain a solid. If you click away from it then it isn’t selected and wont show as a solid.

But this is all speculation, attach a model that shows the issue. Drag and drop into the message window or use the Upload button at the top of the message window.

When you say ‘Click Away’ it sounds like you have merely deselected it.

I know this is not a square box, I’m trying to trim off a 45 degree miter from the end of the profile, and when i go back and forth from shape to shape they don’t stay solid, mabey I just don’t know what I’m doing

As I originally said, it’s nesting. You have each part wrapped several times in another group.
Explode until you just have two solid groups.

Thank you very much for your time, mabey this is above my skills, but I will try to figure out
thanks you again

Here you go have a look at this.
The angle is grouped 3 times so I explode it twice to get it to be one single solid group. The rail is grouped twice so I explode it once, then use solid tools.
