How Can We Help?

Custom locations missing after installing SketchUp

Previous versions of SketchUp (6.0.514 and earlier) store custom locations in the "sketchup.tzl" file, which is located in the path below:

SketchUp 6.0.514 and earlier
"C:\Program Files\Google\Google SketchUp 6\Support\"

SketchUp Pro 5
"C:\Program Files\@Last Software\SketchUp 5\Support\"

Newer versions of SketchUp (6.4.112 and above) store custom locations in the "locations.dat" file in "C:Program Files\Google\Google Sketchup #\Resources\en-US\"

To transfer your custom locations to a newer version of SketchUp, open the "sketchup.tzl" file with a text editor, copy the contents, and paste them into the "locations.dat" file.
