save selected plugin?

Postby j_forrester » Fri Nov 12, 2010 5:06 pm

Hi guys,

Just wondered if there is a "save selected" plugin about? I used to work on a mac where you could have multiple sketchup files open and copy and paste in place. It seems on a PC this is not possible?

I have a large model with many buildings which I want to work on individually in serate scenes to speed things up.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Under Windows you can Copy and Paste in Place between windows.

You mean right clicking a component and then Save Component ?

thanks thom,

I thought opening another session it would not reconise what it was copying. Also save component way as you suggest works well, I thought there may have been a option to save selected but saving as a component first is hardly going out your way.

Many thanks.

i'm on mac but i don't think it matters for this..
copying goes to the clipboard so it's stored there, not within sketchup..

for instance, i can copy an object and quit sketchup.. relaunch sketchup then paste it.. (and weird as it may sound, i have done this in that past :D )

I think [?] I wrote a 'save selected tool' once...
[Also a 'similar save layer'...]
It simply erased everything that wasn't selected [and not needed]... and did an export as a 'skp'... and then 'undid' the erase back to where it had been [luckily an 'export' is not undoable]...
I can't be bothered to find it/them now... but it's/they're around here somewhere... 8-)

If you were old as the Sphinx, I could understand your forgetting what you have done, but your statement scares me :shock:

If I [or you for that matter!!] could have been arsed to do a simple search on this forum you'd have got this 'export by selection' = viewtopic.php?p=183756#p183756
OR this one that does it by 'export by layer' = viewtopic.php?p=183609#p183609
