How Do I Unhide All in SketchUp?

Are you struggling to find hidden elements in SketchUp? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to unhide all in SketchUp using a few simple steps. So let’s dive right in and bring those hidden elements back into view!

Step 1: Select All

If you want to unhide all elements in your SketchUp model, the first step is to select everything. To do this, click on the “Select” tool from the toolbar or press the S key on your keyboard. Once selected, all your hidden elements will be highlighted.

Step 2: Right-click and Unhide

With everything selected, right-click anywhere within the model and a context menu will appear. From this menu, hover over “Unhide”, and you’ll see a sub-menu with two options – “Unhide Selection” and “Unhide All”. Choose “Unhide All”.

Step 3: Verify Unhidden Elements

After selecting “Unhide All,” all hidden elements in your SketchUp model will be revealed. Take a moment to verify that everything you wanted to unhide is now visible.


  • If you only want to unhide specific elements instead of everything, choose “Unhide Selection” instead of “Unhide All”.
  • If some of your hidden elements are still not visible after following these steps, make sure they are not on a hidden layer or grouped within another object.
  • You can use the same steps to unhide layers as well. Simply select the layer you want to unhide instead of selecting all elements.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully unhidden all elements in SketchUp.

Now you can continue working on your model without any hidden surprises. Remember, using the Unhide All option should be done with caution, as it may reveal elements that were intentionally hidden for a reason. It’s always a good practice to double-check your model after unhiding to ensure everything looks as intended.

We hope this tutorial was helpful and saved you time in uncovering hidden elements within your SketchUp projects. Happy modeling!
