A query in something I have notice this evening relating to the numbers of Components reporter in a Model. Firstly here is an outline of my process;
I processed a simple DWG file to clean it up, (the Campus series in dealing with DWG files was very useful). It’s made up of a series of blocks for light fittings etc. meaning they are Components in Sketchup.
Imported Cleaned up DWG into Sketchup and Exploded. All Components that should be Components are and all is nice, neat and tidy, with various Components using the required Tags.
There are 70 Spotlights, (Components), in the Model.
Here is the query. When I click on one Spotlight Component and from the Context Menu, select ‘Select All Instances’, the Entity Info Panel reports 140 Components (70 In Model).
When I select ‘Select Active Instances’ from the Context Menu, Entity Info reports ‘70 Components in Model’.
Just curious as to why there is a difference.
