I recently began experiencing this also and it is very frustrating to reposition most of my toolbars every time an instance of SketchUp is opened. It just started last week and had never occurred before.
Reading through the Knowledge Base, I came across THIS ARTICLE and I tried several of the things identified in it including resetting the Workspace but no joy so far. I’m going to try removing the program and reinstalling as an admin once again to see if the issue goes away, but that is a job for tomorrow. I’ll post an update and I hope some enlightened user can find a solution soon.
Is this problem just the top toolbar?
I moved mine around a little while ago and they were jumping all over. I now keep the standard toolbars to the left and extensions to the right of them and they hold in place.
I’m no-one to diagnose this but it seemed that they only moved when I had an extension on the “left” of a standard native toolbar. That’s how it went for me.
As an update: Uninstalling and reinstalling as administrator etc didnt solve this problem for me. It was connected with the fact I was using a multi monitor setup, which was pointed out by sketchup support.
So if anyone is still having problems and using extension monitors unplug those then do the uninstall/reinstall on the base machine. In my case everything was fine after that.
Same for me, just upgraded to 2018 and vray 3.6. Never had this issue on any other sketchup version except for this one. I’ve tried everything mentioned on here even the multi-monitor thing and to no avail. None of my toolbars stay in place. It’s very annoying as I use sketchup professionally for exhibit design so I need to have sometimes 3 instances open at once daily. So I’ve given up and just leave them floating out of the viewport on my second monitor until they either provide a fix or an update. Sucks to pay so much for software that has an annoying bug such as this.
Right clicked and installed as admin. Doing this only fixed an issue I had with plugins not updating, that was annoying too. But I’ve tried everything mentioned and my toolbars still do not stay in place.
Thread closed??? So, what is the solution?
I used to be able to have 5 separate trays open on the side monitor. This is invaluable as you have a perfect overview of everything. Now the trays are truncated and only individually available via tabs at the bottom; how stupid!!!
Yea not sure what’s going on with this, I am still having to re-arrange my toolbars every time I open sketchup. I use it for work everyday and it’s a very annoying bug. I have tried everything and nothing has fixed this. Now I’m experiencing freezes every 15-20 mins on even the lightest models. I’m using a rig build specifically for Cad with a quadro 1000 card 32gigs of ram and a beefed up i7, Never had these problems with sketchup pro until 2018. Thinking about changing back to 3ds max or maya for the work I’m doing.
I had the same issue,
What worked for me was to find the file
which was located at: AppData\Local\SketchUp\SketchUp 2018\SketchUp
and copy this file to the same location as the
which was located at: AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2018\SketchUp
and for some reason that worked!!
