In the last few days, sometimes but not always, when I open a Sketchup 2016 (latest free version) file, all I see is the tool/menu/tray bars. The workspace is blank and white. When I get this, sometimes it fixes itself after awhile or if I reboot. Changing scenes doesn’t help. I’m not having any other computer/software related issues and have been told by my technical help that this is a software issue.
As I was typing in this problem, I followed one of the suggested threads that led me to a solution. I opened WINDOWS/PREFERENCES/OPENGL and unchecked USE HARDWARE ACCELERATION. That brought back my workspace.
Now I’m curious. Will doing this affect any other software or just SU? Does this mean that I need to leave this option unchecked all the time or just when I have a problem?
Any thoughts will be appreciated?
