Learn how to undo an action and use the Esc key to let go of a starting point.
- [Instructor] There are many times…that you will need to go back and undo an action…that you perform in SketchUp.…The undo function is really simple.…You can either use the dropdown menu at the top,…Edit, Undo, but it's much easier and more efficient…to use the keyboard shortcuts.…On a Mac, that it's holding down command + z.…On Windows, it's holding down control + z.…So let's go ahead and try that.…Let's say I moved the sofa back and set it down…just a little too far.…
On a Mac, I'm going to hot command + z,…and again, on a PC, control + z,…and that will undo the last complete action.…That goes for drawing, moving, rotating things,…things like that.…But what if you need to let go of something mid-action?…The escape button is a perfect function for that.…Let's say we were moving this coffee table…and we realized that we grabbed the wrong thing.…So instead of hitting undo,…because I haven't actually completed that action,…I'm going to go ahead and hit escape,…and it's going to let go of that table…and allow me to move what I'd like to move.…
