- [Instructor] Now let's take a look…at Sketch-Up for the Mac.…Now, the OSX interface for Sketch-Up…is a little bit different than it…is for Windows.…Probably one of the biggest differences…is that the Mac version does not have…the tray along the right-hand side…of the interface.…That functionality is located in…the Window menu.…So, if you were to look at this menu,…you would see all the functionality…that you would normally find in…the tray on Windows.…So if you wanted to get into components,…you'd just select it here and it will…float that window, and you can again…access that functionality.…
So, on OSX it's floating windows…rather than the tray, but the menus…are all in the same place, so we have…a file menu, we have an edit menu,…which allows you to cut, copy, and paste.…We have a view menu, which changes your…view and how you see the scene.…We also have a draw menu that allows…you to draw any sort of object,…and then we have a camera menu as well…as tools, window, and help.…
Now one of the other differences…between OSX and Windows is the hotkeys.…
