This is a silly question, but I can’t seem to solve it and spend a lot of time working around it. In my attached SKP file there is a red object and a blue object that belong in different branches of the Outliner. I’ve added a lot of copies just to make my point more realistic as if in a complex model. My only task is to trim the blue object with the red object. So, this becomes a two part question.
Is there any way to trim the blue object without moving it down the hierarchy and into the x->y->z parent group (or of course moving the red object up to the a->b parent groups).
Assuming you can’t, is there any way to temporarily move the red object into the a->b group without dragging and dropping it (cut and paste would be a great addition to sketchup)? I often get lost in models where I haven’t labelled all the groups as to where to return the object to and dragging and dropping slows me down and adds to the confusion.
