I just replied to a similar post but seem to have spoken to soon. When
I do the thing you descibe it looks like the measurements box stops
In Sketchup 7 I believe in case you wanted you could always escape
from an action with a tool with esc. key (this works in 6). After your
described sequence this also seems to stop working. It's as if your
stuck in the measurements box.
So first you got to get out of the measurements box altogether. The
only way to do that seems to be by selecting a tool with the mouse.
I hope this helps.
