SketchUp Release Notes

Fixes/Improvements Stability

  • Fixed a frequent crash that could occur when copy/pasting geometry that needs to be merged with hidden geometry.
  • Fixed a frequent crash that could occur when doing a copy/rotate after having cancelled out of a previous copy/rotate by activating another tool.
  • Fixed a frequent crash that could occur on some systems with AMD/ATI graphics cards.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when opening/working in some models with unfixed validity errors.
  • Added a fix for a non-reproducible crash that could occur when using the Rectangle tool.
  • (Mac) Fixed an issue where simultaneous Component Browser searches led to SketchUp crashing.
Tools and Inferencing
  • Made updates to Measurements toolbar entries for tools:
    • A closing bracket is now added automatically when an opening bracket is entered for both square and angle brackets related to point and delta input such as [nn,nn,nn] and (in US locale).
    • (Win) SketchUp now recognizes both the decimal and list separators that are set within the Windows OS.
  • Fixed an issue with the Rotated Rectangle tool where entries in the VCB (Measurements toolbar) were not working as expected after the second click.
  • Fixed an issue in which Dimensions or Text would snap to a sub-component origin instead of the component origin.
  • Fixed an issue with the Tape Measure tool in which a model would not rescale when measuring two points on a face and entering in a value in the VCB (Measurements toolbar).
  • Fixed an issue with the Tape Measure tool in which you could not infer from a face to create a guideline along another face.
  • (Win) Fixed an issue with the Tape Measure tool where guides would toggle off when using Ctrl + Z to undo a previous operation.
  • Fixed an issue where materials on faces could be lost or faces could be flipped after modifying geometry in certain cases.
  • Fixed an issue where an offset of an ellipse would sometimes offset as a circle.
  • Fixed an issue where color swapping/pixelation would occur on very small textures.
  • Improved Checkup’s messaging for graphics cards that report inaccurate memory information.
  • Improved our ability to get diagnostic data on startup crashes.
  • Fixed an issue where the letterbox bars were displayed incorrectly when the Advanced Camera Tools’ aspect ratio did not match the current window.
  • Fixed an issue where Advanced Camera Tools did not correctly export 2D images.
  • (Mac) Fixed an issue where users on certain iMacs were not able to export to 2D graphic containing transparent backgrounds.
  • (Mac) Fixed an issue where exporting a 2D graphic with a transparent background would produce jagged edges on certain iMacs. These artifacts could also be seen in LayOut.

LayOut Release Notes

Fixes/Improvements Stability
  • Fixed a Raster and Hybrid Rendering crash that would show up during DWG export.
  • Fixed a crash related to the Text Edit.
  • (Win) Fixed a crash with DWG export when the file being exported was in use or the user does not have write permission.
  • (Mac) Fixed a Style Builder crash on quit.

  • Fixed an issue where the user would not be able to update a table when the external file was lost.
  • Fixed an issue where Excel formatting was used when the ‘Use Excel Formatting’ was unchecked.
  • Fixed an issue where entering a new dimension after exiting Edit 3D View would produce a wrong measurement.
  • Fixed an issue where current camera position would be lost when switching to a scene with no camera properties.
  • Fixed an issue where Classification attributes were not showing up in the Label auto-text dropdown.
  • (Win) Fixed an issue where the SketchUp model text can appear too big within LayOut.
  • (Mac) LayOut now uses SketchUp’s mouse scroll direction. An issue has been fixed where the paperspace and modelspace zoom directions were reversed when set to mac’s ‘Natural’ scroll direction.

  • Fixed an issue where extensions with multiple periods in filenames would not load.
  • Fixed an issue where BSTRToUTF8() returned unreliable data.
  • Added SUGetColorOrder() to allow for a platform dependent way to get the indices indicating the ordering of color data within 32-bit bitmap images.
  • Added SUTextureWriterGetImageRep() to allow for a way to export ImageRep from TextureWritter.
  • Added SUModelCreateFromBuffer() to allow for the creation of models from the bytes buffer.
