Extensions do not transfer from year to year, they will need to be re-installed. Your shortcuts should have transferred over and be working in SU22. If you had a shortcut for an extension it won’t do anything until you install that extension.
Both 21 and 22 can exist on your machine, why delete 21? You could continue to use it.
You really do need to take a few minutes to understand the software you are using.
SketchUp 2021 will open SketchUp 2022 files.
You’re doing something wrong if it will take you months to install fresh copies of the extensions. You can copy them from the older version but be prepared to spend time chasing loading errors due to incorrectly install and/or out of date extensions. Best to load them frsh from their sources. This should not take you more and a few minutes.
There is no “solution” for this. Re-installing extension in each new version of SketchUp has always been and will continue to be. 3rd party ruby code needs to be added to each new version of SketchUp. The best way to do this is to reinstall your extensions, taking this opportunity to clean house and get rid of unused ones.
did you try this? Since the new file format was introduced files are now backward compatible. No downsaving should be necessary from 22 to 21.
Thank you every1, I know you all trying to help, appreciated.
As pointed out, I do not need to change version right now as 21 & 22 are compatible.
Chasing all extensions installed is just the last thing I want to do besides finding licenses, etc, but mainly due to the time (hours) that it would/might take. Stress with deadlines is enough to add more to it.
I rests my case & hope SketchUp finds a better & friendly way to update their versions.
Have you been in the ext. warehouse lately? Something has changed, there is no batch download anymore. It takes longer going to each page, download and back to the list. Sketchucation rules when it comes time for batch downloads.
