Yesterday was the launch of Windows 10 with free upgrades for many existing Windows customers. While we aren’t finding anything that’s going to ruin your day, I wanted to post a reminder that new software and especially beta software (I’m looking at you El Capitan) are not known for their reliability. We strongly recommend having restore options to go back to the previous version of Windows if you’re going to jump out there and upgrade. If you do install Windows 10 and run into issues, be sure to post here if you’re a Make user, or submit a bug if you’re a Pro user but remember that it takes time to FIX issues and even if you find a legitimate bug, it won’t necessarily be fixed quickly, remember that SketchUp is an annually released product and we can’t time our updates to coincide with operating system launches. In short, if you’re worried about losing functionality and productivity, do NOT upgrade until you’re certain it’ll work.
There is currently a beta for El Capitan (OS X 10.11) which SketchUp and LayOut definitely do not work in, we will not support SketchUp in this environment so be aware that you’re using that at your own risk.
** November 18th, 2015 Update - With the release of SketchUp 2016 we now support both Windows 10 and OS X 10.11 (El Capitan.) If you’ve been experiencing any issues on either of these operating systems be sure to upgrade asap. Note that if you have an active Maintenance and Support Plan then the upgrade is free and you should receive an email with your new information soon!**
