Select Tool lag issue on Windows 10



You might want to check with Intel, too.

I don’t suppose you can add a card from Nvidia can you?


I could I suppose, but I just spent $175 upgrading to 16GB thinking that was my problem before signing up to this forum. I’ll try all other suggestions first. I appreciate your help.


Good luck. Since this lag is a graphics thing and Microsoft seems intent upon undoing any fixes you make related to graphics drivers, changing cards seems like a good option if you can. Those who have Nvidia graphics who have reported this problem have found that Microsoft switched their default graphics back to the integrated Intel graphics. Resetting back to the Nvidia card has solved their problem.


Where do I find the Sketch 2017 installer?


Unless you deleted it from your Downloads folder, that’s the most likely place for it. You can download it again here:


With HP Support we uninstalled the latest Microsoft update. the KB4013429 talked about in this forum is no longer available. We checked the Intel graphics card; it is updated to the latest. The Select Tool has never worked properly (7-second wait). All else with this Sketchup Make works perfectly.
Any other suggestions?


Reading all the traffic on this I’m beginning to think it might jsut be an Intel Graphics problem. What Nvidia card would work? Any one or all of them?


Generally speaking, all Nvidia cards work OK with SketchUp. Very old ones with no current drivers might have troubles. A consensus seems to be that something like a GFX 1050 Ti would provide the best bang for the buck for SketchUp use while Quadro cards are unnecessary and have a very poor price/performance ratio.


This happens every time Windows updates escapes my clutches and runs itself. Usually I have to roll back my graphics card driver to resolve but there was no option to this time. Thank goodness for this fix (which worked like a dream, thanks), I’ve cancelled my mission to kidnap Bill Gates, although my machine did restart without warning 2 half a half hours into a render, so it might be back on depending on how today goes.


I have the 2017 make version of sketchup and have been fighting this problem as well. I have tried all the suggestions here and discovered that I need to restart my laptop 2 or 3 times to get the slow select tool to respond correctly. The windows updates cause it to slow down but if I uninstall the update, it just comes back when it autoupdates again. Restarting seems to be the answer for me for now.


restarting works for me too


Checked for graphics card driver updates. There was one published in February, 2018 by Intel for my Lenovo Yoga 711 Laptop and that fixed the problem.
