how far back can UNDO go? I was sorking in close proximity of some stuff that wasnt grouped, and I must have erased a group that highlited. Is it better to undo until I get to the eraased entity or do a hard shutdown and see if it is there under autosave? thanks

I just figured out why it is good to work with components instead of groups.

The discussion of whether to nest groups in to components or nest components into groups could be long.

I have always used components. What advantages would there be to use groups.

I thought you grouped stuff to keep it from sticking, to allow you to place batches of stuff on a layer easily...but basically to keep entities of an object grouped until it was ready to component. I thought the component was a near finished assembly, something worth filing and using again, but the way it sounds many will component the line that is going to be the roof, and build from that.

what I learned yesterday is, if you inadvertently erased a group you might have to be creative to get it back, depending on how much work you had accomplished before you noticed,; but if you had made the same assembly a component and erased it (mistakenly), there is a copy of it in the component list.
I know... everybody else knows this....

rhanc,

In my learning SU, I had never used the components window to see my own components. I had thought it was only useful for pulling up components from one of the libraries, and it seemed easier to use the 3D warehouse or draw my own.

Now I learn that I can pull up my own components, even ones that I had erased but not yet purged. SketchUp keeps getting better and better.

It's probably too late now, but FYI SU can undo (and redo) 100 actions.

...or to your last save
I could never need 100 undos...haha...except for that day...after all the undo and redo I did a controlled crash and all the stuff I was trying to get back through undo'ind was there!

and thanks...
