SU Pro 2016 - Adding a Layer


#1

SU Pro 2016 - Cannot add a new layer.

The Layer toolbar window does not have the familiar Add Layer(+) and Delete Layer (-) buttons found in SU 15.

So how do I add a layer?

#2

Use the Layer utility window which you should find in the tray.

The Layers toolbar doesn’t contain the + and - either.


#3

So the only purpose of that Toolbar is to change the active Layer, but changing the active Layer is considered a “worst practice” when modeling in SketchUp? Just get rid of it then.


#4

You can also put an existing object(s) on an existing layer (change layers). Select one or more objects, then click the layer in the toolbar.

I see. I have always used the Layers drop-down in Entity Info for that.
