Is anybody else getting an error message that the EW search facility is down?
Yes. I see it, too.
anyone have an update on when EW will be back up and running?
Nothing has been published. Technically the SketchUp folks are out of the office until January 2 but knowing some of them, they won’t be waiting until then to fix this. Until it is fixed, patience is called for.
It seems to be back up for me. Thanks to the SketchUp team sorting this out in the background, over an out of office holiday period as well.
