Paint bucket tool button

Paint buck tool does not work any more. 2017 version, you could click on paint bucket and all the material would appear - now with 2018 version - noth’n - you need to go over to Default tray and hover over that to get the material list. Is this correct? is it going to stay like this?

Are you running SketchUp on Windows? If so, which version (7.x, 8.x, 10.0)? When you installed SketchUp 2018, did you right-click on the installer exe and select Run as administrator?

Probably not

If that’s the case, locate the installer app/exe, right-click on it, and select Run as administrator. When you see the following dialog, select Repair.


Thanks - I will let you know how it goes.

You have probably accidentally pressed the Auto Hide button in the title bar of the tray. It toggles whether the tray should be always shown or disappear when taking the mouse cursor away from it.
