Is the option to flip along the axis gone?

I feel like I’m going crazy here… since about 30 minutes the option to flip along axis in the right click context menu seems to have disappeared in SketchUp for Web. I’ve tried clearing cookies, opening the app in an incognito window and a different browser and nothing seems to restore the option. Does anyone have any advice?

It’s under the toolbar now

These release notes talk about the change, but not how to use it in Go.

Do a search for options and assign a hotkey to it. Flip is still an option that has been renewed to make its operation clearer by showing colored planes.


Thank you!! I was tearing my hair out trying to figure this out – I play a lot with the web app when I’m bored at work and was going crazy trying to figure out why I couldn’t flip things anymore.

While the instructor panel is open, select the Flip tool on the toolbar and follow the instructions on the instructor panel.


Thanks, I saw your post after posting it. I understand.

This is what the Instructor says about the flip tool.

it is also simply Flip … no more “Along”.

The new tool makes sense, but why remove it from the right-click context menu? Now it’s an extra step to fetch the tool. I DO understand why they wanted to update it and the tool is so much better now… I don’t understand why they can’t keep a right click option that skp users have used for years to access it. It’s been a while since they changed how copy works. Once again, I’m looking forward to improving it, but I still can’t copy it properly due to years and years of muscle memory thrown out the window. Progress is good, but not throwing away what already worked. Apple is so good at this keeping it familiar and working the same while updating everything.

Just make a keyboard shortcut for it.

Sure, why not just keep right-clicking to get there where you’ve been from the start?

You still have to deal with the gadget for Flip.
