I hope someone may know how to reset the standard Sketchup pro Material “Colour” pallete back to its original default state. im not sure how but I’ve mucked up thye graduating grey sequence a bit that i use quite a lot and I just want to reset it back to how it was in its default state ( I already have my own custim libraries fot timber steel carpet etc )
Cant find anything on the web about a reset.
I tried deleting the NSColorPanelSwatches.plist in the library folder but that didnt work.
Any advice appreciated.
They seem to be stored inside the .app package here:
The only change I’ve made from the default is duplicated the last black one just now, ‘Color M09’
Click for (almost) default list
Color M09 copy.skm
This seems like a strange way to do it, so if you delete one, it’s just gone? If you’ve deleted them recently you might find it in the trash or in a backup.
If you have an older version of SketchUp installed you could maybe copy the materials from there. Don’t do that when SketchUp is running. Re-installing SketchUp would fix it but that seems a bit extreme. There must be an easier way.
Thank you Gordon. I didnt realise you could show package contents of an app.
I close SU 2020 and found Sketchup.app / Contents / Resources / Content / Materials / Colours. I made a backup of the .skm files in there and then deleted them from the Coulors folder. i then copied in the same files from the same location in the 2019 app and opened sketchup 2020 back up and presto back to normal. That was a great tip thank you. Paul
A small and not closely related point.
Could you please update your profile, if you are now using SU 2020 - it still says 2017.
And have you updated your OS and/or graphics card since 10.10.5? That’s Yosemite. And SU2020 won’t run reliably or at all on Yosemite, IIRC.
It doesn’t much matter for this topic, but it often can in other topics you might later enquire about.
Glad you got your issue fixed.
Good suggestion, I hadn’t thought about keeping that up to date, and no doubt that becomes relevant with lots of problems.
I have updated, and added my website where some models show how accurately the built results turn out to be.
Good looking website. Tx.
