Click the Shaderlight Light Placement Tool button on the Shaderlight toolbar


Select Area Light from the Type drop down menu in the Light Editor.




Place the area light with two clicks using the same method you would use to create a face using the Rectangle tool in SketchUp. Click once for the bottom left of the light and a second click for the top right. As you drag out the area light before the second click, you will see an orange line showing in the center of the light which indicates which direction the light will shine.



Note: You can change the settings of your light (such as color or brightness) either before placing your choice of light or anytime after the light has been placed, by selecting the light icon
