Text and Dimension tool improvements
We've made the text and dimension tools more versatile by supporting font sizes
that remain fixed relative to a model. This makes it much easier to create CAD
style annotation in Google SketchUp as dimensions and text can be sized
proportionally to part of your model. We've also improved the quality on screen,
in images and in printing.
Google SketchUp is now faster. See more of your model during view changes thanks
to the way Google SketchUp can intelligently drop out rendering options as is
needed while changing your view.
Force Inference directions
Now its easy to tell Google SketchUp exactly which direction you want using the
arrow keys. Left = green, Up & down = Blue and, Right = Red. We've also
added toggle functionality so you don't have to hold the keys down.
Better modifier keys
We've made using the modifier keys less confusing. Now its possible to create a
copy at anytime during a move, rotate or push pull operation. Or if you
accidentally made a copy you can switch back to normal tool operation. In the
move tool its possible to switch between normal, copy and auto-folding at any
We've made the intersect feature more robust. We've also added two new ways to
intersect: Intersect Selected Only and Intersect with Context. Intersect
Selected Only does just that. It performs an intersection between only the
selected items and will ignore items that are not select. Intersect with context
works while you are editing components and groups. It is a way to ignore items
outside of the current context during intersect operations. Combined with paste
in place and boolean modeling is easier than ever in Google SketchUp.
Paste in Place
Paste In Place is an improvement to the copy, cut and paste functions. Now the
precise location is remembered for quick placement of a pasted selections. Its
great for moving geometry in and out of components or groups without having to
reposition your selection.
Two point perspective
Now you can set any view in Google SketchUp to be a two point perspective
rendering. Quickly and easily recreate this classic style used by draftsmen and
illustrators. The result is a simplified perspective image where all vertical
lines in the model appear vertical on your screen, and in prints and image
