Good morning. For years I have been able to “group” a cylinder and have the axis point be in the center. Starting today, I am not able to achieve this and assume I accidentally made a change of something that causes this… I can’t find any way to set (or reset) the location back to the center.
The image below shows on the left a cylinder made before today. The one on the right in the same file was made today. Looking for help. As a log home guy, this is very important to me.
I did right-click… my video capture was made with a program that does not show tooltips. As I wrote, I did right-click and chose to make the group. But I’ll do it again on my phone and upload this video to confirm that it does not solve the problem… that when double-click to confirm the axis position moves to a corner and does not stay in the center as I need.
I believe you will encounter the same result. Extend the cylinder and then double-click to edit the group. This changed 1 day ago
I am not saying that Sketchup changed. I am saying that I believe that I messed up a setting and it’s no longer working. I have been working in 2021 without issue and getting what I need but yesterday was the first time that I encounter that it does place the z-axis in the center of the extruded circle or cylinder.
I assumed it was a setting that I just have not been able to find.
The other change was for what was thought to be a good reason. Me convincing people to change it back might not be easy! Also, such changes take a bit of time to be approved, implemented, and tested. It will be a while before you see any change in an update from us. You should try that extension, see if it will work around the problem for now.
