    Follow Along Project - Part 2

    I have attached my set-up for Sketch-Up and later I will post exactly how I have drawn my project to get just the information I need for the moment.

    But for you folks that want to try SketchUp and have some experience with other CAD programs, or just pencils and a drawing board, maybe this will help. Pretty basic stuff, so all you whizzes at SketchUp can yawn and move on.

    Good write-up, Carol. I even picked up a few tricks.

    Thanks, Garry. I have never saved something as a pdf. How do I do that?

    I hope you got it, Larry.

    Thanks for the info Carol.

    For what its worth, to those that dont have it, i would highly recommend the acquisition of the full version of Adobe Acrobat. I know most have the Adobe reader to read pdf's but Adobe Acrobat as a package when installed allows for add ins into the office suite as well as browsers.

    The beauty here is many fold.

    1) You can go to a site select text and right click and it will save it to a pdf document. After which if you have a bunch of docs that you wish to combine you can use Acrobat to do that.
    2) You can use it with a scanner to scan an item directly into pdf document format.
    3) You can use it to create a pdf from a word document and then if you sharing it with someone else do mark ups and add sticky notes.
    4) The real big feature is the security you can add to your document such that someone else cannot modify it. This helps a lot in the business sense with contracts etc.

    There are tons of uses i find it a very very useful tool and it aint that expensive. I did not buy the latest version when i got mine, i bought a by gone version from a discount seller but its fine for my needs.

    BTW your view may be different.
    cheers
