When I create a label for a component in Layout and click the blue arrow to open the text options box, it won’t let me click anywhere. When I click, even anywhere in the box, it just closes the box. I’m able to use arrow and tab keys to move the highlighted text, but the mouse does nothing but close the popup.
The weird part is this only happens when I first create the label. I can leave the label tool and double click the text, click the blue arrow, and use the popup box with the mouse with no problem. I recently switched from a Mac to PC and that’s when this issue appeared. I found the work around of exiting the label tool and re-entering it, but this basically doubles the amount of time it takes for me to do certain documents and seriously messes up my workflow.
Is this a bug or do I have some setting set wrong? Thanks in advance.
When I first place the label, it auto fills with the component description, which sometimes is correct, but other times I need the component definition, depending on whether the document is internal or for clients. So if I need to change it, I click the blue arrow to open the text box. The double clicking is only after exiting the label tool and going back to re-open the text box so I change to the correct label.
It doesn’t show in the screenshot, but my cursor is over “Component Definition” yet it isn’t highlighted, and when I click on it the text box just closes and remains the component description.
Here is another screenshot showing what happens if I exit the label tool and double click to edit. Notice the “DEFINITION” is now highlighted and I can click on it. This is what doesn’t work when I first create the label.
Out of curiosity, when you installed SketchUp and LayOut did you do so correctly? That requires right clicking on the downloaded installer and choosing Run as administrator. If you didn’t, close SketchUp and LayOut, find the installer, right click on it, choose Run as administrator and then choose the Repair option whenit is presented.
Still no luck after uninstall/reinstall. Any other possible suggestions? I don’t think it could be any settings since it’s all set to default with the new installation. I’m stumped especially since I seem to be the only person with this problem.
