I recently switched to SketchUp 2023 Pro from Pro 2021 (that I have still installed in my PC)
I just noticed that if I work on a file created in vs 2021, after either I Save as… or Save a copy As… with a new name, the new file won’t shows the correct new name in the Window Title bar but It still showing the name of the original file it was created in vs 2021 pro.
I.E. I open a file in SketchUp 2023 PRO created in sketchup 2021 PRO. after I save as… with a new name the name on the title bar won’t change, even though the new file is created correctly in the right folder. You can immagine the confusion that could create.
Maybe I was not clear enough. I did save as (2023 version) and as it shows in the attached real example image, the new file is called Daniel Office VS1.3 FinalOK.skp but as you can see the SketchUp window title bar of that same file it shows that the file is called Daniel Office VS1.
Hope this time I was more clear.
I never mentioned I want to open a 2023 file with 2021 version.
I want to work with Sketchup 2023 starting from files I created with 2021 and when I save as with new name or I save a copy as with also a new name , I expect sketchup title bar shows the correct name of the file I’m working on .
This issue is not happening if I start from scratch a new file in sketchup 23. whenever I then save the new file with a new name the title bar shows the new correct name.
Thank you using (_) instead of the (.) do the trick for now.
Since I’m here and you are so fast and kind to answer.
My preference are set like this, but still when I I click to open a new file from the welcome screen I have to start browsing my hard drive from window Document folder.
Should not be the Models string customized preference indicate the folder to stat looking form models to open?
I maybe fixated with the period, same as SketchUp it seems could not handle it.
No pun intended…
I don’t plan to change my habit because of that, especially because all other software I use won’t have any problem with it.
Not meaning to be rude, but using (.) in file names has been a no no for me at least as long as I can remember. Not completely because, but fairly uniformly when you add a . the next thing is the file extension.
Perhaps it has become less obvious since hiding the file extension has become more normal.
