Whether you need to run Windows programs that don’t have Mac versions, or you are making the switch from PC to Mac and need to transfer your data, Parallels Desktop has you covered. Seamless Use Windows side-by-side with macOS (no restarting required) on your MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac mini. $begingroup$ Note that if you were to take the shift-by-4 register connections and arrange the registers in a matrix of 4 rows and N/4 columns, instead of a single row of N columns, you'd see the 'parallel connection of 4 shift registers' some of the comments are talking about. $endgroup$ – Ben Voigt Sep 26 '19 at 4:48.

SketchUp is one of the most well-known and widely-used 3D modeling software available out there. Ask any architecture student or furniture design enthusiast, and more likely than not they’ll tell you this program is a consistent top contender in their lists of most frequently-used products. The software is known for a variety of applications that revolve around the construction and design industry. It’s used in industrial design, interior design and decoration, architecture, landscape architecture, various engineering disciplines, film and stage design, and video game design.

One of the biggest reasons for this is the program’s accessibility – it comes as a free-to-use web-based application known as SketchUp Free and has a now un-updated but free downloadable desktop version known as SketchUp Make. Sketchup Pro, the paid version of the program, has added functionalities and import-export options.

The program is also popular for its incredibly intuitive interface – most new users find themselves shocked at how easily they get the hang of using the product. If you’re reading this article, it’s safe to assume you’re fairly familiar with how the software works, probably as a relatively new user. Now, the next logical step after getting familiar with Sketchup would be to figure out how to get faster at using it. We’ll be discussing one of the most helpful topics when it comes to mastering 3D modeling with Sketchup: keyboard shortcuts.

Here in Scan2CAD, we’re big supporters of the use of keyboard shortcuts; we have a bunch of previous articles that help readers figure out how to use their favorite design software faster and more efficiently. Keyboard shortcuts are great time savers and let you get your ideas onto Sketchup and other software quickly. Your modeling experience gets more seamless and intuitive and in general, there’s less friction between the program and your design ideas.

A lot of users will typically feel overwhelmed with most keyboard shortcuts lists for design programs. Lucky for SketchUp users, SketchUp actually keeps its list short and neat. And really, with how easy the program is to use, you only need so much keyboard shortcuts.

Parallels says it is “amazed by the news from Microsoft about adding support for x64 applications in Windows on ARM.” Microsoft would need to make Windows 10 on ARM available for Mac users to install in virtual machines to take advantage of that. It sounds like Parallels isn’t working on running Intel versions of Windows on Apple Silicon.

Default Keyboard Shortcuts

Sketchup’s default keyboard shortcuts are fairly easy to get a handle on. You can access them through the program by opening up the Window tab, going to Preferences and then Shortcuts. You’ll have a list of all the available shortcuts that are set on SketchUp by default and even add your own custom ones, but we’ll talk about that later. The SketchUp website itself has its own easy viewing guide for keyboard shortcuts, but for now, what we provide here is a concise list of SketchUp keyboard shortcuts for your own easy reference.

Tool (Shortcut)

Function

2 Point Arc (A)

Use Arc tool.

  • You can specify the amount of the arc’s bulge by typing a number and then pressing Enter.

  • You can use this to change the Field of View of the model by holding down Shift and click-dragging the mouse.

Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

Other than the default keyboard shortcuts, we’ve mentioned before that it’s possible to add custom shortcuts for different SketchUp tools and functions. This is especially useful for specific tasks you find yourself doing regularly but don’t have keyboard shortcuts for.

To customize or add personal keyboard shortcuts, click on the Window tab, go to Preferences and then Shortcuts. Look for the command – it even has a useful search function for that – and click on Add Shortcut. Tap the key combination that you want to sue and then click the plus sign to finalize the shortcut.

You can export your keyboard shortcuts by clicking export on the same Shortcuts dialog box. In the same way, you can import any custom keyboard shortcut presets that you see fit.

With all this at your disposal, you’re well on your way to being the fastest SketchUp user in the West. Master the default shortcuts, customize what you want, and add your own.

To use a keyboard shortcut, press and hold one or more modifier keys and then press the last key of the shortcut. For example, to use Command-C (copy), press and hold the Command key, then the C key, then release both keys. Mac menus and keyboards often use symbols for certain keys, including modifier keys:


On keyboards made for Windows PCs, use the Alt key instead of Option and the Windows logo key instead of Command.

Some keys on some Apple keyboards have special symbols and functions, such as for display brightness , keyboard brightness , Mission Control and more. If these functions aren't available on your keyboard, you may be able to reproduce some of them by creating your own keyboard shortcuts. To use these keys as F1, F2, F3 or other standard function keys, combine them with the Fn key.
