Saving Sketchup files

I am getting a message “Sketchup failed to save file”

I had moved my Sketchup drawings folder to desktop for easy retrieval.
Does the drawings folder have to be in same folder as program?


no, definently not…
using Desktop or Documents in you User space should work…

is the file opened from the same place?

if you right click the file name above the SU drawing window, it shows the folder the skp comes from, if that’s not in User space you may have an issue saving…


if Windows: try if launching SU by right-clicking and selecting “Run as Admin…” helps, if yes there’s something wrong with the rights of the used user account as e.g. an installation with another user account.
