Flip Along Axis by Shortcuts  Topic is solved

Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Flip Along Axis by Shortcuts

Postby HornOxx » Sat Jan 24, 2015 8:12 pm

Hi All
is there any possibility to supplement the native SkUp right click "Flip Along Group´s Red, Green, Blue (Axis)"-tool by any own shortcuts (Alt-X, Alt-Y and Alt-Z for example)?
I couldn´t find this possibility in the Preferences-Shortcut-Settings ...

Regards

For a lot of actions, you can only assign shortcuts if the action is actually reachable. So you should select a group before you open the shortcut preferences and the entries will be there.

I have used keyboard shortcuts for the Flip Along commands for years. There's more than just three, though.

I use F2, F3, and F4 for flipping along component's red, green, and blue. And Shift+F2, Shift+F3, and Shift+F4 for the rest. Since I don't use groups, I haven't assigned keyboard shortcuts for flipping them.

Well sure there are. if you wanted keyboard shortcuts for all the flip commands, you'd need to make nine of them. I already gave the six I use. Since I have no use for groups, there's no need for me to make the three shortcuts for their flip commands.

Context menu: Flip along red, green and blue

I'm ready for a "duh" revelation about the others

It depends upon what you have selected. Try it with a component and a group and some loose geometry or multiple components or groups. Three different sets of flip commands for three axes.

I've always used the context menu so I never noticed. Thanks for the clarification.

Well, of course they are accessed from the Context menu and thus the commands change depending upon the context. ;)
