Thank you.

Ahhhh ... changed already. I added a red dot to the original set to show the association between related buttons.

CAD father's, as always, are nice icons.

Hey Matt:

Could the new values created when the accuracy buttons are clicked, be displayed somewhere such as in the Task Bar or better yet when the mouse is put over the top of button?

Only the 10th and 11th icon work on my Mac version. Also, as mentioned previously, the buttons stay depressed even when you press a different one.
Also, there is not much difference in the gray color between pressed and not pressed for the "Dec" button (when it is in its "not-pressed" condition it is already grayed out, but not quite as much as when it is pressed). See Attachment.

When I get it working it will be of significant value since I often work with both decimal inches and feet/inches.

Is there anyone else that is having trouble with this plugin with Sketchup 7.1.6860. It will change the precision but not the units.

Thanks in advance.

Somehow I missed this post. So today I tried this post. I now have a toolbar with no icons showing. It seems the icon should now be in another directory. I haven't moved the icons until I know this is what is at fault.

Also, after selecting Fract in the plugin menu, the plugin stop working until I select to top selection.

So was the attachment you had posted, was that for my problem or a MAC issue.

And what happen to Matt666?

Would like some help, I find this a very valuable plugin.

Thanks in advance.

I know work. Was busy until recently. So now I was presented with some down time and in the process of trying to take care of some problems I had let slip. Food and shelter is always first on my list. So Matt666, let me thanks you for the script again.

blajnov, thank you for the updated. Not sure why I couldn't find this update on the site, but I couldn't. The scrip now works just like it did before. Not my plugin or my site, but maybe this update should go to the front of the topic. Anyway, again, thanks to all that helped.

Now lets hope the new cap works and work can start again.

Ken

Please make your original post clearer (if editing is allowed on this forum).

Toolbar to change drawing units quickly.


Hi -- I may not be understanding what this tool does, or how units work in Sketchup; I am frustrated because I can't do what seems to me a simple thing.

Here is the deal. I am working on a model in non-metric units (feet and inches). But I have paper sketches from a colleague in Norway who has annotated his drawings in decimal meters. I'd like to reproduce his hand drawing directly into my model by copying it exactly, so I'd like to work on a set of components in meters or mm. To my surprise I could find nothing in Preferences for toggling from metric to inch and back. So I thought that Toggle Units plugin might enable me to switch the whole model from inch to mm or cm.

I installed it. But it seems to toggle units only between different representations of inches (the first 4 buttons); the other buttons (mm, cm, mt) are grayed out and inactive. I really want to toggle between metric and inch -- is there no way to do this? it seems such an obvious thing to want to do :-) argh. would rather not have to use a unit converter and manually convert all the dims on my colleague's drawing!

btw I am aware that I can draw in any units I like, i.e. enter dimensions in notation like "3.0m". what I cannot do is use the Ruler tool to verify those dimensions after drawing, because the ruler is apparently hard-wired to inch units. if I could just toggle the Ruler between inch and metric that would be great!

any ideas would be gratefully received as this has got me bogged down right at the start of the project.

I read backwards in this thread and found that others have had some trouble with Leopard (OSX) and this plugin. I grabbed a more recent version edited by Jim Foltz Oct 2009 and installed that.

The Foltz version works except that the icons do not display: this I thought was because the icon paths were all set to CD_ICONS/TWEAK, but I substituted the correct path "toggle_units_icons" and I still get no icons in the toolbar. So I have to memorise the button sequence or wait for the balloon help to pop up :-) but the tool now does exactly what I was hoping for: my ruler can be toggled to work in inches or meters, hooray.

If anyone can tell me why these lines of code

Code: Select all
cmd.small_icon = "toggle_units_icons/tudec16.png"
cmd.large_icon = "toggle_units_icons/tudec24.png"


do not correctly association the png files with the button, I'd like to know (I don't speak Ruby obviously). meanwhile I'll happily use the version with anonymous blank buttons -- project no longer stalled!

the lines make sense if you have the corresponding folder (toggle_units_icons) in the plugins menu..

plugins menu? or plugins directory (folder)?

that subdir does exist in the plugins directory (as do other subdirs of small images used successfully by other Ruby extensions). can't figure out why the images are not getting associated with the buttons. but hey, the unit switching function works and that's what I needed. I can fool around with the icons later.

as I say I do not speak Ruby, but I used to be extremely literate in Tcl/Tk and the syntax is not completely alien. I have tried various things, even using the full pathname. other .rb scripts are correctly finding their icons w/rel pathname starting at 'plugins', but this one for some reason is not. mysterious! I've looked for some initialisation that might set the default path, etc -- no luck so far. must be a very silly coding error that I can't see because I'm so unfamiliar with Ruby apps.

checked the obvious like protection bits on subdir and images, checked that they really are .pngs, checked that they are not empty files, etc. baffled.

oh well. something to fool with when I've nothing more urgent to do :-)

What versions of Mac OSX are you running? I have Snow Leopard and the icons do show up for me. You might need to check View>Tool Palettes>Toggle Units to see them.

Just tried installing Toggle Units into my SU8 plugin folder, and found that the icons won't show up. Is this a known problem for SU8? If so, does anyone have a fix?

Kind regards,
Bob
