I do have the short cut of course, but the visibility of nesting components is the issue.

I understand. I would make a copy of the upper "parent" component that you wish to be able see as a reference--away from the rest of the model. You don't have to do it in a separate drawing (unless it's huge in MB).

Yeah. . .that's the method I have been doing for these types of things, but still it would be nice to just have that option. Seems to me like a little thing. I guess not since it has'nt happened since ever.

We're fast closing in on a year + 1 month since the last major release:
  • the anticipation is driving me nuts (not walnuts but coconuts, I hate coconuts),
  • the lack of communication is giving me the heeby-jeebies, especially with the OSX only maintenance update released recently (but hey, at least that was done to help OSX based clients, good on you!),
  • makes me want to scream as I've had to pay my maintenance blindly (which, as per historical release cycle, would have been after the new major release).

SU 2015 released 11/3/14
SU 2014 released 2/27/14
SU 2013 released 5/21/13

This is the longest between releases since 2013 was issued.
SU has long since stopped being a hobby for me. It is one of several important tools in my professional work flow, so I'm always eager/interested to know what improvements might come thru this program, and what I need to do in order to incorporate such changes.

Hopefully, the extra time has been due to additional native tools being added or high poly models being handled better - period :enlight:

I would certainly upvote SU more if they gave us some ideas of where they want to go with this software. (instead of all the interpolating that happens in the forums) In years past, the wish lists (here anyway) have devolved into why something couldn't be done. :?
I have been holding off on investing precious time in learning another way for modeling, but Chip Walters' "Blender" videos are looking more and more attractive. I might have a damn it moment, bite the bullet and start down the path of learning Blender too.

I hope Sketchup 2019 will handle more complex geometry plus some amazing updates to Layout.

Small feature request, but I'd like the ability to show area in a different measurement to the drawing dimensions.

I'm not sure how things work in America, but in the UK and Europe detailed architectural work is drawn in millimetres, and square metres are used for areas.

When a client asks: how much paint do I need, seeing 8483472mm2 is quite confusing. I currently have to switch the drawing units, see that it's 8.5m2, then convert back to mm to continue modelling.

No, unfortunately not. When I put the poll up I thought it will be rather useless to have it up for a month as the release was expected to be rather imminent, now that it is going on a year plus almost a month since the last major release I was tempted to change the poll time and open it indefinitely until the new major release is, well, released.

Back to the poll, some of the results have been rather unexpected.

Meanwhile Whaat is teasing with some GAME CHAGER before the end of 2018. Highly likely there will be x10 more features than in SU19 (sadly)

I have talked to some people (and I can't say who) about a month ago and at that point SU 2019 was still being run through its paces with the BETA testers. So my guess is that the release is imminent, but its kind of like predicating the stock market, lots of unknowns.
