Ability to snap to an inference when using the move tool to extend or retract the end of a cylinder. Currently, one needs to punch the appropriate arrow key, or hold the shift key, to make this work.

I wish any contents contained within a group or component's instance field can be automatically omitted as an option when exporting a model in 3D form to AutoCAD. Otherwise, they become displayed as text objects that are not easily erased.

I've been saying this since version 5. It would be nice to have control of visibility nested components and groups so I can alter a component and see the just next nest level up rather than all or nothing.

but. . .maybe I'm the only one.

If I make it look easy. . .then it probably is.

Have default template option that allows Tray Components > "In Model" as default save. I hate having the "Components Sampler" as the default open option.
Have default template option that allows Tray Materials > "In Model". Somehow Mine always opens a "wood" folder.
I have tried creating a templates, saving the trays with "in model" as last opened, but new files always open to the above mentioned folders.

Wish for LO to have a previous "camera" view feature like SKP - and with non-instantaneous transition time. Similar to AutoCAD's VIEWBACK command.

Wish for LO to get rid of the carriage return associated with copying text from a label or text annotation object. After I paste the string into the destination, I have to hit backspace.

Wish for LO paper not to be partially concealed by tool tray stack when shift + z is pressed.

Wish for SKP to permit user to place cursor on row of scene tabs and force them to scroll left or right in unison with mouse wheel sideway's toggle. Applicable mostly with numerous tabs stretching beyond workspace screen, of course.

Wish for LO to paste clipboard contents wherever the cursor is, like SKP does, instead of shadowing the original object.

Wish that the floating trays in SKP and LO can remain in their positions on the canvas as the window is dragged from screen to screen when you have multiple monitors.

Until then... choose the placed 3dText and use the right-click context-menu 'Unglue'.
Or place it in 'open space', where it will be unglued and 'flat'...

Wish that vertical z axis inference color could be cyan as the current blue can be construed as the black inference color.

Wish that the right-pointing scene tab scroll button wouldn't be partially off the screen. Better yet, wish we could scroll the tabs left and right with sideways toggling of mouse wheel when cursor is hovering anywhere on the row of scene tabs, like I've mentioned twice before.

In File, Geo-Location, Add location:
- back to Google Earth, please!
- possibility to import point clouds such as *.LAS-files and others here
As an alternative to import large *.LAS - files: plugin that converts *.LAS-file to *.KMZ that can be imported in Sketchup.

Wish SKP Pro would allow 3 computers, vs. 2, per license. One is a PC at the office, second is a laptop for jobsite visits and third is a PC at home.

I wish the LO workspace could scroll as you drag objects past the edge.

Output options for panoramic and stereoscopic 2D images and animations.

Obviously we can do this using various render engines, or exporting to something like Unreal. However the option for a quick and dirty SUp pre-viz VR or panoramic would be incredibly useful.

David, Nige and I were just discussing this issue of stereoscopic 2D images and animations.
Trying to find a solution (simple) that allows to export a spherical 360° 2D images for viewing with original SketchUp model style from scene camera (to play in comparison to the Thea 360° spherical render)... should be possible. But, as this comes up today, I'm surprised this has not already been added. So, yes... please... add an export 2D image option for being able to produce natively from SketchUP a spherical image that could match (even with resolution) the rendered output.

Wondering why Sketchup's "Send to LayOut" is not exporting the drawing's XYZ = 0;0;0 to the middle of the page. It would be much appreciated, especially after using Chris Fulmer's great plugin: Center on Origin.
It would be even better when we could choose the XYZ-coordinates to export to the middle of the page in LayOut.

I don't know if I explained it properly... in Dutch it would be easier.

The sticky nature of LayOut's labels is a source of frustration. Wish we could copy and paste them where the cursor is set (like in SKP) rather than zoom way in to be able to grab it by the neck and hopscotch it over with the Ctrl key. I say 'hopscotch' vs.'drag' since the canvas doesn't scroll when you get near its edge.
NOTE - the issue is especially problematic when labels have short leaders.
