I have an SKP file with a few dozen kitchen parts in. I’m going through the parts one at a time, turning them into components and filling in attributes such as pricing, product code, weight etc. I got about halfway through then realised that almost all of the components I had created had exploded themselves, ie. they were no longer components, or even groups, and had lost any attributes they had. The components that remained unexploded were the last 3-4 that I had created, and the first 4 I had created (see next paragraph). There was no error message or visual indication anything had changed, other than the components simply vanishing from the components tab.
I assumed a corrupted file - after the first 4 components I had got a Windows blue screen error (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL). I had then rebooted the machine and continued using the recovered file which seemed fine until I noticed the above problem.
Fortunately before starting creating the components I duplicated the file and saved a backup. So I rebooted my machine, checked for Windows and driver updates, installed sketchup 2020 (was on 2019), rebooted again, and started over with the backup file. As I created the 3rd component I noticed the price attribute had auto-filled with the price from the previous component, unprompted. I cancelled creating the 3rd component, and the 2 previous components had exploded. I’ve been using Sketchup a few years now and never seen anything like this?!
Anyone got any ideas? I’m completely at a loss at the moment. If I can’t recover this it’s 3 or 4 days work gone. Thanks!
