I have been working with the sketch up guide for woodworkers and find it to be very instructive and a great investment!!
I have tried to use the X-Ray view to locate three circles on a section of wood behind a panel at the top ( X Ray views attached). I plan to install magnets inside these three circles to retain the large panel and prevent it from dropping down as it will be hinged for use as a drop down desk top off a wall. I want to locate the circles from the section behind the panel and transfer them to the front of the panel to mark the location for drilling the holes for the magnets.
Using X-Ray view does not seem to work as I expected and I assume it is my operator error, not the program. I can locate and draw the circles however they seem to appear on the backside of the large panel, not on the front of it, even though I keep the circle drawing tool on the face or front surface plane of the panel when drawing them. When I switch off X Ray view, the front panel is clear, no holes? If I turn the X Ray view on, I can see the circles I have drawn and they seem to be on the back face of the panel and they are not transferring to the front. Could it be that I have not named each components separately?
Any input from the forum or the experts is greatly appreciated!
