I recently finished a 30 day trial period of pro and now have an issue with the model I was working on… I had used the outliner heavily during my modeling and now no longer have access to all the groups I created before. The biggest issue I have with this is the items I had hidden before using the outliner… they are still hidden in the free web designer and I’m not sure how I can now unhide the items without the outliner?
Also for future reference using the web designer; what do you guys use to hide/unhide items? Is using tags on items the best way? (that’s what I’ve been relying on now).
Thank you for the response Dave. I have attached the skp file below. The issue seems to be with not having a pro account… without access to past trial outliner, I’m not sure how I can access the hidden items in free web mode. Metal Garage House.skp (2.9 MB)
You’re model is pretty messy with excessive nesting and hidden objects within hidden objects. I think I’ve unhidden all of the hidden objects. Create tags and assign them to the objects in the model.
I presume this is a hobby thing for you? Might be better to start over and create the model in a more streamlined way. Don’t use so much nesting of groups and components. That makes working with the model much harder than it needs to be and again, use tags. Hide is best used for temporarily getting objects out of your way but tags are better.
OK, thank you so much Dave! Yes, I agree in hindsight the different variations should have been saved in separate files/models. In hindsight, had I realized the outliner would go away, I definitely would have modeled that way.
