    It makes life so much easier
    No problem! - using groups and components correctly is the key to sketchup. Get some shortcuts set up for those two and 'hide rest' and you will be flying!

    Thanks again joe for another tip "shortcuts"
    If any one is interested i found some good videos for sketchup at Home - Harwood Podcast Network. I do find it a fantastic program and it's free. I've found the easiest way of transferring holes from one component to another is to draw a line at 90 degs from the centre of the first hole through the other component and then draw a circle on that components face. I tend to leave things at that because i find it difficult repairing "punched through holes" if it needs to be moved.
