Sketchup 2018 Tool Palette - WON'T SAVE SETTINGS:



Hi there, I’ve just purchased Sketchup 2018 pro, been a pro user of 2016 since it came out.

Anyways I’m dealing with the frustration of trying to get my tool palette, not tool tray, to save. I want my tool palette location of where I place all my tool bars the way I’d like them, to save. They will not.

I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled as an admin and it still doesn’t work.

I paid how much for 2018 update fee and I can’t even get my tool palette to save? I feel like I’m missing something, shouldn’t be this hard.


Toolbar settings are saved in PrivatePreferences.json, located at ~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp/SketchUp 2018

It should save settings upon closing SketchUp. You can check by date/timestamp if it does.

If not, something might be wrong with the write permissions
