Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Materials palette on a Mac, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…In this chapter, we're going to be using the materials editor quite a bit.…Now there are quite a few differences between the…Macintosh OSX version of this window, and the Windows version.…So let me go through some of the differences here.…If we go into Window > Materials, you'll see…this is the materials window that we'll be using.…And on the Mac, it's a little bit different.…Now, the first thing you're going to notice is…that the color pickers are a little bit different.…So, we have basically a number…of different standard Macintosh color pickers here.…
But you're going to be doing most of your work here…in this window, which is going to be the texture palettes window.…And in this, you'll find that we have a pull down menu, which…allows us to select any one of…the standard materials that come with SketchUp.…So if you wanted brick or carpet or colors in the model,…that sort of stuff, we can use that.…Now if we want, we can also step through those using these arrow keys.…If we hit Home, it always brings us back to colors in the model.…
