Scene Tabs

Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Scene Tabs

Postby bertsminky » Mon Jun 13, 2011 1:20 pm

Is it possible to colour code the scene tabs to easily identify a particular single scene or related block of scenes.
Ie use one colour for scenes showing elevations, another for isometric views of the model, another for floorplans ???

Scene tabs can't be colored in Sketchup or through the API.
You can use distinctive naming in CAPS or with |>>>PUNCTUATION<<<| etc :?

Ok, I've a related query so I'll carry on this thread.

Would it be possible to request that the scene manager has an extended menu with parental group control in pretty much the same way as the styles menu works.

So within the scene manager one could select a group (or multiple groups) from a list eg, 'Modeling Views', 'Construction Elements', 'Construction Documents', 'Interiors', 'Animation', etc.
Within each of the groups one could then save specific scenes eg;
Modeling Views - Level 1, Level 2, Topo On, Topo Off, etc.
Construction Elements - 21_Structure_Walls Ext., 41_Finishes_Walls Ext.,
Construction Documents - North_Elev, South_Elev, L.1 Floorplan, etc
Interiors - Kitchen N_Aspect, Kitchen S_Aspect, etc

This would allow the user to create scene tabs that convey specific information but they can be managed to show only the particular scenes required depending on the task in hand whether that be raw modeling, setting up construction document views or preparing scenes for animations.

The ability to save scenes and their groupings to a template would be great, especially once these are partnered with their corresponding template in Layout.

This is exactly what I´ve been searching for a long time!
Could work similar to "layers panel".
Or does anyone know if such a plugin does exist?
