File could not be saved

image file save issue

had this pop up a couple of times can anyone shed any light :slight_smile:

many thanks chris

That looks like a write permission issue!
You have tried it again, now, try another location ([menu]File->Save As) or other name and close SketchUp.

These issues could derive when other applications like OneDrive tries to sync and hijacks the file.

Check if you have full permission in the Windows explorer (rightclick on the folder, properties tab)
Normally it should be ok, but something might have changed that)

Try to repair your installation of SketchUp:
Find the installer file or download it again, rightclick on it and choose ‘Run as Administrator’
When asked, choose repair.
You need to be logged in in your normal user account.
