Hello, I have sketchup files created in 2018 pro. They were fine in 2018 pro. They crash everytime I open them in 2019. I need to revert to 2018 to work on my files. We have a subscription which will not allow me to load sketchup 2018.
How do I install a pro, full version of 2018, we have a subscription and have had permanent versions in the past. I could use 2017 even, it worked fine in 2017 before upgrading to 2018. How do I install and use a pro, full version of earlier versions?
How can I fix my file? It is a large complex file with a large amount of textures. The number of polygons is not terribly high. I have run the plugin Cleanup and it does not make a difference.
Anecdotally, I hate the licensing scheme that prevents me from running older versions. I hate to say it but even Autodesk is better in this regard. This latest round of licensing changes is horrible and makes me seriously consider finding an alternative to sketchup. There is zero true value in the latest upgrade to make it worth either a subscription or worth the hassle of dealing with issues like this. I long for the @last days and even for Google. Trimble, your policies are counterproductive and make me want to switch to a different software. I’m mad, I’ve wasted hours trying to deal with this.
