First time posting. Introduced sketchup to our workflow early last year and it’s brought our tradeshow booth building company to a whole new level. Recently we’ve upgraded from 2015 to 2016 and we’re encountering a minor issue, hoping it can easily be fixed.
I’ve managed to reproduce this error multiple times but I can’t quite tell what’s going on. So here’s the gist of it. Opening an existing 2015 file in 2016 file. It contains nested components (assemblies with sub-assemblies, all properly modeled in components, not groups.) At the part level, if I copy a component everything looks fine, but as soon as I enter it, sketchup renames my original component (ie. component definition = part#1, sketchup renames it to part#2) and then both components are not the same anymore, therefore not linked. So any changes now applied to the copied component (still called part#1) or the original one (now renamed by sketchup to part#2) isn’t reflected.
It’s a very bizarre problem, and it doesn’t always come up (sometimes copying a component works just fine.) I can’t put my finger on why sketchup is renaming components on his own. Also, the renaming only happens when I enter the component.
Wondering if anyone can reproduce this error, has any information on what is going on, or has encountered this in migrating from 2015 to 2016. Thanks for your help.
EDIT: I should have mentioned, I’ve reproduced this error on multiple computers (different installations and licenses, but all on windows 7 pro 64bit) and with different models… so as far as I can tell, this is not specific to a single user, installation of sketchup or corrupted model.
