Plugin missing from 'Plugins' menu, or 'Plugins' menu is missing

When you install plugins, or "Ruby scripts," or "extensions," on your computer, you may notice that the tool doesn't appear in the 'Plugins' menu. Please note that the author of the plug-in must explicitly choose to put it in this menu.

The plug-in may reside in a different menu, such as 'Tools' or 'Draw.' Sometimes, you will only see the plug-in in a context menu - the menu that appears when you right-click on something.

Be sure to read any documentation related to the plug-in to fully understand its use.

If the Plugins menu is missing, that means that you have no active plugins that need that menu item. To test, open SketchUp and click Window > Extension Warehouse. Search for the [ Example Ruby Scripts ], and install that plugin. You'll need a Google Account to download and install plugins from the Extension Warehouse. To create a new Google Account, feel free to visit this page. You don't need to have/create a Gmail email address to create a new Google Account. You can use any email address, but be sure to select the option "I prefer to use my current email address".
