How do I do the following:
1. add Sketchup drawing to a post?
2. when responding to an existing topic copy the relevant section from an earlier post so that it includes the name of the person who posted it?
3. when linking to the internet rather than showing the web page address have text in blue, i.e. see this, that when clicked on will open the relevant web page

Use the quote button in the right hand corner of the relevant post.
If you want more than one quote from previous posts then open another copy of the thread in a new window and copy and paste quotes from there.

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried that and it gave me an error message "The extension skb is not allowed." Do I have to save the Sketchup drawing in a different format to allow posting or have I done something wrong?

Yes, it will be necessary to convert the file to one of the more popular compressed image formats.

.JPG, .GIF, .PNG.

When I try to save the Sketchup it will only allow me to save as skb ..... only options are this with earlier versions of Sketchup. How do I get around this please? I have seen other people attach Sketchup drawings so there must be something that I am doing wrong :(

I have done screen shots of the web, but cannot work out how to do this in Sketchup :(

Boy am I technically challenged or what? On second thoughts maybe don't answer that :lol:

Found something by a Google search that worked, which is: In Sketch Up - File, Export, 2D Graphic.

Thanks for your help.

Usually the 'Print Screen' key on your keyboard will 'copy' whatever is on the screen, regardless of program. so if you hit print screen and then go to a blank page in any drawing program and 'paste' you should have a screenshot. then trim, save etc.

Thanks for that. I have managed to get the Sketchup saved by exporting - see my post previous to yours.
