Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Active, inactive, and selected, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut.
- So we're now in Chapter 04-02,…and we're looking at section planes,…the active, inactive, and selected versions.…And we'll also be looking at the Section toolbar…and these two icons here.…This is Display Section Planes,…and this is Display Section Cuts.…Now, you'll only see a section cut…if you have an active section plane.…So even though I've got three section planes…all visible in this model,…none of them are cutting because they are not active.…There's two ways to make a section plane active.…
If I select the edge of it and right-click,…then I can click on Active cut.…If I double-click on a different plane,…then this will be the active cut.…Now, by double-clicking on the edge again…will make it inactive.…And you can also tell which is the active plane…because its edges are filled in.…Okay, this active plane, if I double-click on this,…we'll see that this is filled in.…It turns to an orange color when it's not selected.…
When it's selected it's the blue color.…And these colors are all determined by the model settings.…
