Lost preference path

Hi ! I loose my file path in preference Modele.
I re-install but nothing change. No accès to change
this path.

Maybe someone know how to fix that

preference bug

hello, this path cannot be changed !

Ok, I just don’t understand. I re-install this path normaly fix by itself. Thanks for the answer

did you lose access to this path ?

Yes that’s why I re-install

did you delete any user on the computer ? did you uninstall sketchup before reinstalling ?

Yes they fix a user problem la week. Always uninstall reboot and re-install

Probably easier would be to just right click on the downloaded installer, choose Run as administrator, and then choose Repair when prompted. No need to uninstall.

If I can’t change this path, I’m going to retreive the user have to be deleted

Good I remember this one, Thanks

someone managed to fix it this way :

Good I try this one

it seems we can change the path after all… but it’s kind of an unorthodox way !

We can change evething but not This path

The last item in the list is to your user’s Templates folder.
It cannot be changed.

I am a little perplexed as to why the paths to your Models and Templates folders are both entitled “Modèles”, the last one with a final space ?
I would have expected the user’s Templates’ path’s title to be translated as something less confusing… although I do realize that it does mean both things in French, and an alternative, like Gabarits, would probably be less appropriate ?

Ok I gave it a try, and it works.

even though there’s no line for templates, you can set it by adding a line.

export the preferences.dat, edit it in notepad and add this line :

Templates=C:\Users… with the correct link

save and import preferences from this file again.
