Can't access "Start Using SketchUp" button!

I recently adjusted my MacBook Pro (late 2013) display properties to the smallest scaled resolution possible, 1024x800. In this resolution, I can’t access “Start Using SketchUp” button! The startup screen for SketchUp Make is fixed and is not able to be resized.

  1. Is there a shortcut that I can access to bypass this screen and go directly into the program?
  2. Is there a setting from within SketckUp 2017 so that I can use this lower resolution?

I love the program, but my eyes don’t!

Please HELP!

what happens if you hit enter/return when the window appears?


you can turn the scaling to standard, start sketchup and turn the scaling back to lower resolution…

Nothing happens!


Yes, that works, but a “real” hassle!
Isn’t there a shortcut that bypasses that startup screen?


Yep. There is. Buy SketchUp Pro and then you can disable the Welcome screen. The same as always.

Yeah, it is called the SketchUp Pro version and the cost is currently around 695 US dollars…
You might wanna contact @lewiswatteau and tell him that there is a workaround…

As I don’t tweet, I can only hope that ‘Lewis Watteau” can make the startup screen resizable.

Thank you ALL, for your replies.
