Thanks for your response, Dave. I meant you are "The Man" in a more global sense:) It's what our colleagues say.

You are right, I'm getting ahead of myself, but, hey, I'm ocd.

I will follow your instructions, and be patient.

I've been struggling for a long time with sketchUp untill I started with these videos. Will take some time no short cuts here but you will really be better off for the best on the Web I know from lots of searching.

I been using the above link to the Swamp Road guy. I like the lengthy explanations that he gives. The Follow Me tool is just giving me such a hard time, especially, for instance, around cabinet tops as crown molding. I'm sure I'll get it in time. I am making progress and not as discouraged, but mildly burned out. Thanks everyone. ocd

David, I tried to call you on sunday evening but didn't get through. What are you doing now?

As to the Follow Me thing for moldings around the tops of cabinets, what problem are you having? Did you by any chance look at this?

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.

I won't interrupt you now then. You probably don't want that phone number out in public, do you?

I tried it after watching your video and it worked the second time. There's obviously something that I'm not doing correctly....

That number is the back line at our office. It's no big deal. How do I send a private message?

I would like to report to the group that some light bulbs have turned on, and with the help of Dave R, I have progressed past groveling in the dark. Haven't really drawn any original work yet, but have feet on the ground. I am pretty sure now I did the right thing by giving my niece all my drafting stuff and using SketchUp instead. Certainly freed up room in my small shop. I will be back on this Forum, and wanted to give an update. Sincere Thanks for your help. ocd.
