This video explains the purpose of the Select tool and the many different methods of selecting entities within SketchUp.
- [Instructor] The Select tool is arguably…the most used tool in SketchUp.…The icon to activate it is the arrow icon…in the upper left-hand corner,…or you can use your keyboard shortcut,…which is your space bar, and I highly recommend…using your space bar since this tool is used so often.…The Select tool allows you to do…just what the title says, select something.…To select an entity in your model,…simply click and release over that geometry.…You can select faces and edges,…as well as groups and components.…
If you select something that you didn't intend to,…you can either click into a space with no geometry…or on a different intended entity.…If you would like to select more than one entity,…you can use a few different methods.…Holding down the shift key while using the Select tool…will allow you to add and subtract…from your current selection.…Lastly, you can create a selection box…by clicking and dragging across your drawing.…If I click and drag towards the right,…everything that is fully within my box will be selected.…
