Cannot save style or drag it to secondary pane


I am unable to save a style as a separate file or drag it to a collection in the secondary pane.
When trying to save the file, SketchUp encounters ‘Error saving style file’.
When dragging the style to the secondary pane, it just disappears.

Apparently a few people have encountered this problem, but I have not been able to find a solution.


Encountered this same issue with Mac SketchUp Pro 2018. The solution/workaround is to make sure you are viewing your styles in the Styles window as thumbnails before performing the official drag and drop action. Drag and drop does nothing if you are viewing the styles as a list. Go figure!
