First time user, can't load file I worked on for 3 hours


#1

I just started using Sketchup today. It was going really well, had a great model of my basement outlined and ready to begin introducing modifications for potential remodel ideas. I had saved many times and even changed the filename 3 times as I progessed to different levels. Then sketchup froze and died. I tried logging back on and now I cannot see any of the work I did before. It takes me straight to the initial tutorial.

How can I find the files I worked on previously? Sounds like a simple problem, but it is not. been trying everything for an hour now.

Please help.

thanks

Hi There

Click the menu icon with 3 bars in the upper left of the screen, then click on Trimble Connect to see files you saved.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. I already tried that, no joy. I have clicked an everything that can be clicked.

I think it may be how I launch sketchup. How do I ensure it knows it is me - the same me that opened an account on trimble this morning? If shows my name, says I am logged on so it would seem that it is the same account, but no files show up when I click on “open”. I know there were file names getting saved somewhere because I saved three different filenames and when I was in the save dialog, I could see the previous ones.

any ideas would be most appreciated.

thanks!

What do you see in the projects hierarchy UI? Check out my screen shot, where it reads “Projects > SketchUp Web Files”. What do yo see there?

Also where are you located? You might be seeing the projects load slowly due to being far away from Connect’s servers.
