Sketchup 2015 Pro glitches on viewing hidden elements

Hello. I’m having the following problem: Open file, bunch of things are hidden → OK.
View → Hidden geometry (turn on the hidden geometry) → It’s like happy new year

If I dont save and reopen → the issue reproduces.
If I save and open → the glitch persists.

The only way to fix it is, if I press “CTRL+A” → “Unhide” → Save and close the file → Reopen it.
But that has to be on every Hide → Unhide, I go through the above steps, which is incredibly annoiyng.

Tried “Model info → perge” as well as “Fix problems”, but without luck :frowning:

Share the SketchUp file so we can see what you are working with.

Also, what is your actual graphic card… if you are truly working in a virtual environment, that may be the issue.

Thanks for the replay. To be honest I didnt expect replays for days, so you did surprised me.
File is V13.skp (2.1 MB)
Open → View → Hidden geometry :volcano:
For extra effects press and hold middle mouse button and zoom and pan around.

As for the environment: Windows 7 on a virtual box (latest gratest drivers extensions).
So the video card says: VirtualBox Graphic Adapter (WDDM). It has allocated 4GB for memory.
My physical card is 1060 6GB and my host environment is latest Windows 10.

Until the glitch yesterday it was ok, I’m working on this file for months.
Also, there are custom textures, but before the glitch everithing worked fine.

My guess is on programming level some line crosses something causing division by zero. At least that is how it looks like :smiley:

So your ancient version of SketchUp hasn’t changed for 8 years. What did change on your computer? That’s what you need to look at. It’s fundamental troubleshooting. I expect it’s the Virtual Box environment which SketchUp doesn’t support. Maybe it worked OK but changes in drivers could affect that.

I’m not seeing any graphical display issues with your model on my machine. I do see you have lots of hidden objects. That would be better handled by proper use of layers.

Thanks. Working on your machine is good clue to solving the problem.

Also, thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it, will dig into it and implement it.
I’m doing this as a hobby project, that started “just to draw it in 5 minutes to have a look how would it look” and then my OCD kicked in and I started detailing stuff… :smiley:
But yea, layering is the way to improve :slight_smile:
