From the SketchUp site:
I'm pretty sure that the first part of this won't come as much of a surprise to anyone who knows anything about Google. In keeping with our "3D for Everyone" mission, and in an effort to let everybody and her grandmother find out about our software... (can you hear the drum-roll?) we're releasing a free version of SketchUp.
Right now the free download is only available for the Windows platform, but the Mac version is coming soon. More information about the free Google SketchUp can be found on the FAQ.
happy sketching up...

Until now... Introducing the PSD "Visible" & "Order" options:
You can have it shortened to have your users only see the following sorted as desired:
This gives us a much shorter list to choose from and using an ordering system that we choose to use. To get the shortened version above we needed to check/uncheck the visibility option and then for the sorting order we used the Order option and simply entered a #1 for the start then continued as desired (ex. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5):
That was the good, now for the minor issue to take note of:
When checking the PSD visibility option you cannot select multiple boxes to check on/off quickly. :(So far I have just been sorting by the column header to help with this, minor irritation but what this tool can help with outweighs the irritation. :)
Having the ability to keep the property set definitions available but not visible to the end user has a number of advantages and the sorting order only compliments this, especially as changes occur to your setup later.
