General Notes

  • The OS support for SU 2022.0 includes Windows 11 and macOS Monterey. The macOS Mojave (10.14) is no longer officially supported.

See full Release Notes

SketchUp

Search SketchUp

First introduced in SketchUp for Web, Search SketchUp is now a desktop feature that allows you to look up and activate commands by typing. Search supports queries for commands by name as well as by ‘concept.’ This means you can search for workflow-related queries — such as ‘elevation,’ ‘boolean,’ or ‘chamfer’ — and see related SketchUp results. In SketchUp Pro, Search also provides results for installed extension commands with associated toolbar or menu listings. Activate Search with its toolbar icon (far left in the Getting Started toolbar), from the Help menu, or by its default shortcut (Shift + S).

Lasso

Lasso is a selection tool that lets you create hand-drawn selection bounds. To create a window bounding loop (where only entities entirely inside are selected), click-drag and move the cursor clockwise. Move counterclockwise to make a crossing bounding loop (where partially contained entities are selected). A stippled vector line distinguishes the crossing selection. If you like, you can reverse Lasso’s directional behavior in Preferences > Drawing.

Additionally, Lasso can select entities one click at a time and works with the same modifier patterns as Select. For Lasso, we are introducing a new default shortcut: Shift + Spacebar.

Tag

The Tag tool lets you apply tags by clicking entities in the modeling window. To specify a tag, select an individual tag in the Tags panel or use the tool’s Sample modifier to grab a tag from an entity in your model. Keep an eye out for tooltips that affirm the tag about to be applied or sampled. When you click to tag entities, a purple bounding highlight blinks to confirm the operation. Learn more about the Using the Tag tool and its modifier actions…

The Tag tool may also be used on pre-selected entities, so we’ve added commands improve bulk selection:

Select > All with Tag (modeling context menu): Select all entities in the active modeling context that share any tag with the pre-selection.
Select > All Instances (modeling context menu): Select all component instances (in the active modeling context) that share a definition with the selection.
Select All Tagged (tag tree context menu): Select all entities in the model (in the active modeling context) that share a tag with a pre-selection in the Tags panel. This command is available by right-clicking the tag tree and can be used on either tags or tag folders.

Freehand “+”

We’ve made a considerable upgrade to the Freehand tool, allowing you to create much smoother curve entities. These improved freehand curves generally contain more segments. Immediately after drawing a curve, you may decrease the segmentation of the curve incrementally, and SketchUp will provide visual feedback with each increment. Segment control is available by modifier keypresses specified in the Status Bar. Freehand has also received axis locking input to set a drawing plane (available before a user starts drawing). And it is now possible to draw across adjacent faces on different planes.

2-Point Arc and 3-Point Arc: Tangent Inference Lock

There is now a tangent inference lock for the 2-Point and 3-Point Arc tools. This new toggle makes it possible to lock tangency from an existing edge so that the next click creates a tangent arc. To toggle on this inference lock, tap the Alt key on Windows or Command key on Mac.

With tangency locked, what you see is what you get. Click to set the tangent arc and start drawing a new one.

When multiple edges intersect, you may hover over an edge to request it as the basi
