Question on using the "repair" option


#1

Hi all,

I’m having really slow response times during saves in 2018Pro. The files aren’t that huge.

If I run repair as administrator, will I lose my plug-ins/extensions?

Thanks

Chris


#2

No. The extensions will be fine. Did you use Run as administrator when you first installed SketchUp 2018 Pro?


#3

Dave, I think I did.

But I installed it many months ago and it’s just recently that I’ve noticed this saving lag.

However that was the answer I was looking for on the extensions.

As always, thank you Dave!

I hope that takes care of the issue. Are you saving locally? Are you purging unused before saving?


#5

It won’t hurt to perform the repair option while reinstalling as an administrator and it may help with the noticeable lag issue.


#6

To both Dave and SUM, it did help, got the saves down to 4 seconds (more or less) from 30 plus seconds. I wish it had helped with Layout!

But thanks all.

Chris

Yes and yes.


#8

How big is the LayOut file?


#9

LOL, let’s not go there again. Remember my hidden door file? It never got done because Layout is unwieldy.


#10

We gotta get you making better SU files so LO isn’t unwieldy. :smiley:

OK, I’ll upload this one to the warehouse. LO, takes 3 to 4 minutes for every minute change. And I’ll load the LO file to drop box. I really hope you can explain what the deal is. Give me a few minutes.


#12

Sorry wanted to remove a link that probably shouldn’t have been posted publicly.


#13

I get a “file is uploading” message on Drop Box and just an image from the Warehouse link.


#14

OK, I’ve missed the mark. Because that’s what I see too!
Bare with me, I’ll get it!


#15

The LO file is downloading now. And I can get the SKP file out of the LO file.

Why is the ISO view showing as modified?


#16

I threw the model up on the warehouse, but for the life of me I can’t get the link.


#17

It’s called “For Dave”


#18

I’m looking at the SKP file embedded in the LO file. Does it need all the detail you show?


#19

LOL, because no matter what I try to do, to get the view I want I have to “modify” sometimes. ant on this one I don’t really think it matters.

Probably not, and I’m sure I could have modeled all my circles with twelve sides. The screw-jacks are the boost to the poly count.
The model size is still tiny.
