Yes. It does work in SketchUp 2019.

Most likely you haven't set up the model correctly to use it. If you share the SKP file, I'm sure we can help you make it work.

Your example SKP is very similar to Dave's demonstration.
Your red-axis line is elevated and the curve in vertical - but it will still work.

To reiterate...

Preselect the group.
Activate the ShapeBender tool.
Click on the Line.
Click on the Curve.
Press Enter to accept 'ghost' version of the bent form...

NOTE: there was an issue with a few tools [like ShapeBender] found in the first version of v2019, but that was fixed in the more recent MR version currently available - have you downloaded the latest v2019 version ?

The issue related to the way SketchUp can take either a point or a vertex when setting up geometry.
This well established protocol was unexpectedly broken in v2019 first incarnation, but that problem is now fixed in the current v2019 installer...

To see if that's the case with your set up open the Ruby Console before running the tool.
The error message [if any] should be obvious...

Hello,

actually when i try to use shape bender after completing make group etc, the words “start” and “end” should appear at each end of reference line along the red axis, but not.
I use skp pro 2019, what should i do?

As you can see in the GIF in my previous post, Start and End do show up in SU2019. If they don't for you, perhaps it is the way you have your model setup. You could share it so we can check it out. Or it could be an incorrect installation of SketchUp. When you installed SketchUp 2019 did you right click on the downloaded installer and choose Run as administrator?

There was an issue with the early version of SketchUp v2019, in which the way the API should treat vertices as points was broken [it had worked OK for many years!], so as a result any API code which used a vertex directly [rather that getting it into a point] to locate something - like a text label - failed.
The newer Maintenance Release versions fixed this and ShapeBender [and others] should now work again.
If you run it with the Ruby Console open you should see the error messages.

Look back through this thread - recent posts discussed it, and the confirmation that it's fixed...
viewtopic.php?p=650879#p650879

So please install the latest version of v2019 - it will hopefully fix your problem...
As Dave says please use "Run as administrator" to install in properly...
