Sketchup 2022 is here! Push the new 'Search Sketchup' feature to a new level with the new FlexTools update! We have also added new flex features, improvements and fixes. See the highlights below.
'Search Sketchup' for Components
Sketchup 2022 brings a new and exciting search feature that allows you to look up and activate commands by typing.
Hit SHIFT+S and the search bar comes up.
This is really cool because you can now type 'window' or 'door' and all the relevant flex components will show up ready for placement.
You can also use search to quickly find any component from your Component Finder generated toolbars!
Hide the Component Finder Banner
Note that the banner may pop up every now and then to highlight special updates and promotions.
Open and Close 2D and 3D Separately
For all doors and window you can now open and close the 2D plan representations separately from the 3D, having more flexibility in presenting your projects.
Click on Arcs to Change Open Positions
Clicking on door and casement window arcs will loop through 30°,45°,90°,135°,180° changing the open position for both 2D and 3D.
Note that in double doors the panels open separately. Each to its own position.
