Selecting a single entity

SketchUp allows you to make both single-entity and multiple-entity selections. To select a single entity:

  1. Select the Select tool (Select Tool). The cursor changes to an arrow.
  2. Click on an entity. The selected entity is highlighted in yellow.



Tip: To select or unselect all geometry, choose Edit > Deselect All, press Ctrl+T (Microsoft Windows) or Shift+Command+A (Mac OS X). Alternatively, click on any empty space in the drawing area to de-select all currently selected entities.
