Can't pin extension toolbar to top


#1

SU Make 2017
On a dell XPS13 with a 3200x1800 UHD screen I can’t pin the extension toolbars to the top of the window. I have no problem on my other laptop or desktop. 1920x1080 It must have something to do with this screen. oR did I miss something?
The SU large toolbar is pinned to the side of the screen no problem.
The others are just laying around. When I move them into position nothing happens - they don’t snap to the toolbar. Normally it drops down another row and it snaps into it.

When you install SketchUp it must be done in a certain way.
You need to be logged in as a normal user [not the main admin, and having admin powers or not as a normal user is unimportant].
Find the installer exe file’s icon [probably in your Downloads folder].
Select it, right-click > context-menu > "Run as administrator"
Follow the prompts.
If it’s already installed and you are trying to correct it choose ‘Repair’ when prompted…

Installing apps in other ways - like double-clicking the installer’s icon - is NOT sufficient to get everything set up correctly…

Having a slightly askew installation can have all sorts of flaky consequences - including toolbar and shortcut issues…

Well after a LOT of playing around with it I finally got them to dock. I did repair install SU, but with the effort to get them there I am not convinced the repair made the difference. I got the main toolbar undocked on the desktop and had a hell of a time getting it back.
Anyway, now that they are docked the extension icons are almost invisible. The SU icons are OK. It is an issue with the UHD display. I have a few other programs that do similar things. Most can cope with the resolution. May be something you want to look into as these displays are starting to become more popular.
