…SketchUp has a lot of tools and you may want to have easy access to these.…We can actually turn those on and off using the toolbars function.…So if we go into view, we have an option here at the top called toolbars and this…brings up a little window here, and this allows…us to turn on or off any number of toolbars.…So for example, one of the most popular ones is called the large…tool set.…So when I turn this on, it brings up a lot…of other tools that I may or may not want to use.…
If I turn off the getting started tool set, you can see…now I've got either the large tool set or the getting started one.…We can have both of those.…I'm going to turn on the large tool set here.…And we also have additional toolbars.…If you want you could turn on one for say, layers.…To manage your layers' measurements, we could…turn one on for additional drawing tools which kind of…mirrors the one that we have in our large tool box.…Camera tools, construction tools, those sorts of things.…So each one of these is a standard tool box.…
