Custom scrapbook file location


#1

Hey guys,

I’m using SketchUp 2017 on macOS Sierra 10.12.5.

I created a new document, added custom scrapbook material, and then used “Save As Scrapbook…”

The scrapbook is with the others in the Scrapbook window, but I can’t find the file with the other default scrapbook files. Where did it go?

Best,

Check the path of the scrapbooks in Preferences->Folders

Thanks Mike! No luck though, it points to the same folder where they aren’t shown:

Applications > SketchUp 2017 > LayOut > Show Package Contents > Contents > Resources > English.lproj > Scrapbooks

Could it have to do with the paper type? I used the full-sized Arch D rather than the smaller sheet.

No, it has not to do with the paper size. There should be another path in the preferences : ~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2017/LayOut/Scrapbooks

where ‘~’ stands for /Macintosh HD/users/<Your UserName

Hmm… looks like I don’t have a Library folder there. I wonder if it was deleted. Should I reinstall?

Nothing over here either:


#6

You don’t see it because it is hidden. Type the address directly in Finder->Go->Go to folder : ~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2017

In LayOut, you can restore defaults of the folders in the Preferences, no need to reinstall.


#7

Ah, yep, found it with the Go To Folder command. Thanks Mike!


#8

Perfect!
You can drag that folder into your favorites on the right for quick acces.
BTW: you can easily acces the scrapbook in LayOut by clicking the ‘Edit…’ button on the right of the little arrows

Yes, I was looking to delete and rename the files in this instance. Thanks again!
