'Search Sketchup' for Components

Sketchup 2022 brings a new and exciting search feature that allows you to look up and activate commands by typing.

Hit SHIFT+S and the search bar comes up.

This is really helpful because you can now type 'window' or 'door' and all the relevant flex components will show up ready for placement.

You can also use search to quickly find any component from your Component Finder generated toolbars!
