    This stuff looks so good.  I've downloaded the SketchUp software and after hours of trying, I can't get it to draw a straight line.  I'll keep trying but I'm not holding my breath.

It made no sense to me but i was determined to finally get a grasp of it. Watched some youtube vids, when I encountered problems I googled it which typically brought me to the sketchup help site.

To me when I realized it was perspective it made more sense. Like if you wanted to draw a line up, look at it from the side rather then some weird skewed/cock-eyed perspective and it will snap to the axis you want. (b/g/r for xyz)

     I'm going to keep trying; it's not like I have anything filling up my copious free time (I have lots of that, I'm a bus owner)!
