…If you want to dive a little bit deeper into your…SketchUp scenes, you can use the Outliner and Entity Info windows.…So let's take a look at them.…We're going to start with the outliner. Now, go Window > Outliner.…And in this particular scene I've got a bunch of groups.…So I've got the house as a group, the…plants are each a group, and the fencing is grouped.…Now when I select it, notice how it highlights…here in the outliner.…So when I select the fence, it highlights this group.…
If I select the groups in the outliner, you can…also see that they select in the view port as well.…So if I select this one, it becomes the house.…Now some of these actually have names, but a lot…of them are just named group which is not very descriptive.…Now we can use the entity info window to make things a little more descriptive.…So if I right click on an object, I go Entity Info.…And in this it will give me the info about this group so this is on the layer…called house now I could actually change my layer…remember from the last movie to whatever layer I want.…
