And there are no errors at all when you start SU?

If you open Ruby Console, what output do you get when you type:

Select_Toys

load 'tt_selection_toys.rb'

TT_Lib::VERSION

I can make so sense why you would not have a Selection Toys menu item under tools and various Context Menu entries (which depend on what you right-click)

I was about to ask if you'd checked the Preferences for Selection Toys, but if you have not menu... I'm really stomped.


Can you post a screenshot of your Tools menu?

hm... I heard some people talk about not getting any startup errors in SU8. Maybe you experienced that and did not get any notification about any errors that prevented the plugin to load.

Whatever it was, I'm glad it work for you now. :)

I see a general issue. There's is a unins000.dat and unins000.exe in his plugins folder. What plugin is this for ?

These files should be in the specificplugin subfolder, or else the installer will be overwriting these files for subsequently installed plugins, and the original plugin can no longer uninstalled with these files.

    Twilight Render, I assume. I mentioned the issue on the Twilight support forum, was told it's not a problem, and didn't follow-up.

    Their installer need work anyway because when you install to a folder that is not the default - SketchUp 7 - none of the preset locations use the custom location and you need to change them manually. :x

    It wouldn't be a problem if the file names were say, uninsTLR.dat and uninsTLR.exe; anything but the installer's defaults.

      See the first post for basic use.
      Thomas has a link to a Command Cheatsheet also in the first post.

      (ThomThom is in Norway, so it was the middle of his night when you posted... he'll answer... be patient. He's an SCF moderator, and checks in several times a day.)

        I did read the first post and sorry guys. there are no instructions there. you may see 'em but I don't..

        just boil it down for the terminally bewildered? so I select a group and say I want to select a row of faces I....? or I want to select a ring of edges I....?

        Quick video below, you can enable/disable context-click options from the UI Settings in the Selection Toys menu.

        Thanks Marcus! Great video - I should put that in the original post.

        Khai: in addition to Marcus' video that showed the menu items, you can also enable the toolbar Tools->Selection Toys->Enable Toolbar

        Select Only -> Polygons ?

        Note that Select Only and Deselect modifies your current selection - doesn't add to it.

        that's exactly what I'm doing.
        select the model, then Select Only -> N-Gons and nothing is selected, even tho I can see Ngon's.

        Polygon and N-Gon refer to entities where the Entity Info display Polygon.

        In fact i believe this N Gon function shown only figures who are made with the tool "Polygon" ;)
        And not geometric figures that you can see as Ngons ;)

        Exactly - the selection tool doesn't look at the shape of the geometry, but filters the selection based on the types of entities SketchUp reports.

        When you select something in SU, the Entity Info window will say what type it is - all the filtering is based on these types.
