A number of fields were intentionally removed from the SketchUp PlugIn inspector in 1.10.0, as they are available via the OpenStudio Application. This was done for a couple reasons: 1) we're trying to reduce the number of ways (and places) that certain model data is specified, 2) there were some weird/buggy interactions between the PlugIn inspector and the Application, and 3) the team is actively trying to reduce the number of things you have to do in SketchUp as more options become available for specific geometry details.

I’m very disappointed regarding this lost functionality. At every new release we lose something. In version 1.9 was the plant equipment operation scheme In version 1.10 materials / constructions and Schedules are not anymore editable Be hope in version 1.11 these functions will reappear's avatar  ( 2015-12-21 05:18:48 -0500 )edit

Hey @jsole. Can you elaborate on your comment about the plant operation schemes? You should be seeing far more capability around plant operation, not less. If we inadvertantly removed a feature that you were counting on then I'd like to know more. There are new APIs, but we take great care to maintain a stable API and backwards compatibility.
