Hi. When you use the line tool on objects, it’s supposed to create lines that are integrated in the object, and those lines are supposed to be a part of the surface. However, I find that very often when I try to draw lines on an object, they create a new surface on top of the object, instead of as part of the object surface. How do I make this distinction? How do I tell Sketchup that it has to create those lines as part of the object I’m working on? This is of fundamental importance, as I’m shaping the object with the help of the lines I’m drawing, pushing and pulling the surfaces into their proper intended places.
This used to be no problem. I drew an object, drew lines on the object, and manipulated the object however I wanted. But now, more and more consistently, Sketchup treats me drawing lines on an object as separate surfaces appearing on top of the object, but not as part of it.
Thanks for the help.
