Files saved in different ways in different computers

file
mac

#1

I sometimes draw in my Mac and sometimes on a PC. I keep all the files on Dropbox. The SketchUp files saves in different ways and can’t always open in the other computer. Why is that?


(some can’t be opened)


#2

SKB files are automatically created backup files from the PC and the ones with the ~ are Mac backup files. Normally you shouldn’t need to open either of them. If you do need to, rename the SKB files to skp or edit out the ~.


#3

have you configured Windows and osx to always show file extensions…

the ones without may be seen as folders on the mac and possibly won’t open due to that…
