Having recently purchased a Surface Book with Windows 10 for running Sketchup, we’re having the following issue with the cursor snapping to points in the model’s geometry:
In all previous combinations of Windows and SU iterations, the actual point that you are snapped to in the geometry has either a purple (within component) or green (outside component) dot to show you where and how you are selecting the geometry in question - this is extremely helpful and was clearly visible because the cursor could float off to one side whilst remaining “snapped” to the geometry in question (see example image from Windows 7). Both SU versions are 2016:
However, it appears that in Windows 10, this floating behaviour doesn’t work and the cursor ends up obscuring the dot that shows what you are snapped to. This means you can’t be sure that you are snapped to the right part of the geometry and makes it very difficult to draw/move anything accurately.
We’ve played around with Preferences and Model Info but it appears that there is an allowance in the software that allows the cursor to float to one side in Windows 7 which isn’t functioning in Windows 10.
Has anyone else encountered this? Its a surprising hindrance to drawing accurately in SU.
