I have red boxes arround my component

Hello everyone,
first, sorry for my English, I am French.

Since I download the 2023 Sketchup’s version, I have some red boxes arround my components (without select them), but, when I select them or just one, a standard blue box appear but the red box still here.
I have an image that I put here :

When I import a full project, I have a lot of red boxes who appear arround my components (or groups)
If anyone had some ideas ?

Thank you !

Normally, a red box indicates a locked group or component.

Bonjour, Dylan. Il y a beaucoup de francophones dans le forum. Vous n’êtes pas obligé de publier en anglais.

Do you have installed the solid inspector plugin? If you do, probably it’s activated on the overlays.


Yes, Oh okay ! So, how can I put the red box off on the overlay ?

Bonjour Saul,

Je vous remercie ! Je n’étais pas sûr, au moins ça fait travailler mon anglais ahah !

Yes, I’am agree,
But this is the same with my unlock groups.

Untick the box for Solid Inspector2 in the Overlays panel.

Ooooh thank you !!
It was that ! Thank you very much, it was so simple…
I watch everywhere except here !

You’re welcome. It’s a relatively new feature and easy to miss if you don’t know about it.

By the way, I think you need to update your forum profile. It shows you are using 2022.
