Working w/ Background/Styles


#1

I am finally starting to work with scenes and changing bacground/pen style etc for presentations. How do I go back to my default settings to continue working on the file.


#2

Pick the original style you were using. If you didn’t update the style after editing it, the unmodified version will be in your In Model styles library.

Dave,

I pick the default style and it’s not the original, I must have updated it
by accident. I am trying to get back to the original, “Default colors,
shade with textures facestyle. White Background” and “straight lines” (no
weight).

Thanks

In the customise toolbar, add the ‘styles’ tab to it. second from left on that tab is ‘shaded with textures’ which is probably the standard you are previously using.


#5

Mike, is the style you normally use available in the Default styles library? If it is, you can select it from there. If not, is it your default template style?


#6

When I open a new drawing, my “default” is what I described above. However, under straight lines there are no default settings, do you know what the default line style is. When I click on default the lin style seems correct but the background is not white.


#7

The default style depends upon the template you selected and whether you modified it at all. What is the name of the style in your blank SketchUp file? You can see that in the Styles window.


#8

I am using the used the Construction Documentation - Feet and Inches template


#9

When I open that template, the default style is Shaded with textures. It’s available in the Default styles library.

But how do I get to the white background, no sky. I really appreciate your
patience.

The style I indicate in the screen shot has no sky. The background is white.

Here’s a model I’m working on right now. I just applied that style. Note, there’s no sky and the background is white.

Thanks Dave, i was able to get it right, is there a video would recommend
for working with styles, edges etc.

I haven’t seen any videos specific to working with styles and edges.

We could talk, later. Perhaps I can give you some tips.


#14

That would be great, I am fairly new to SU but I did take Daniel Brown’s 2
day seminar.
