Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Use the Outliner and Entity Info, part of SketchUp 2016 Essential Training.
- Another way to stay organized…is to use the Outliner and Entity Info windows.…Now the Outliner is a list…of every object in your scene.…I have the Outliner here…in my Default Tray.…Now if you're on the Macintosh,…you'll have to access it through the Window menu.…Now the Outliner shows you…the names of all the objects in the scene.…So if I click on one of these objects,…you can see that this one here is Potted plant,…here's the Trailer, and here is the Stairs.…
Now this is a great way to select objects in the scene.…I can actually click on their names to select them,…and I can also hold down Shift…to multi-select them.…Now some of the objects in the scene…don't really have descriptive names,…so if I were to select one of these objects,…I could rename it…using the Entity Info window.…Now we've seen this before…but let's go ahead back into it.…Now this is where we can…assign an object to a Layer,…as we've seen before.…
Well we also can give objects names.…So for example, this little piece of fence,…we can call it FenceA.…
