New Styles wont save



I have been trying to save my own styles but I keep getting this error message:

Error saving the style file. The file could not be saved.

I have tried dragging the new style into the secondary window, but nothing happens.

Any suggestions as to what I can do?


If I remember correctly, try changing the style window from Thumbnails to List View.


Thanks so much! I already had it in list view, but I changed it to thumbnail view and that seemed to do the trick!


What library have you chosen in the secondary pane? If it is one of the libraries that come packed with SketchUp, you’ll have issues due to the location of the Styles folder in the Application package and security for that folder. Although you could modify the security settings, it would be better to make a new library in a different location.

Edit: Or do what you did.
