SketchUp 2023 Crashing with Styles Editing

I’ve recently upgraded to 2023 and have been opening and editing all my 2022 files.
Firstly, styles are sometimes messed up in 2023 from what I set in 2022. Axes are shown as strange dashed lines and geometry is filled all black. I have to edit the style to return it to normal.

Secondly, I am getting intermittent crashing when dealing with scene tabs. The crash seems to be triggered by a change of scene tabs. Bugsplat Crash #9622. I’ve had this happen more than 10 times across different files so far. I’ve resorted now to saving every time I touch a scene tab or style setting.
I’m currently putting it down to teething problems in 2023. Has anyone experienced this or have a fix?

Using Windows 11 V22H2

What styles are you using? What graphics card? Can you share a SketchUp file that shows this?

Please update your forum profile. It is very out of date.

Ok yes it’s a bit old! I’ve updated now.
I’ll try find a file that crashes regularly and post here

Ok here is an example file.
On my computer, SketchUp crashes when I do this:

  1. select the scene Front 3D
  2. change the view style to say Hidden Line
  3. right click the scene tab and select Update
  4. in the pop-up dialogue select Update the selected style
  5. now select another scene, say Rear 3d - and the program crashes.

I have been able to repeat this error at my end several times, so hopefully you can see it too.

I think I’m following your instructions correctly :thinking:

I’m not experiencing any crashing.

Hi Paul, Thanks for trying.
I did a re-install/repair of sketchup just to rule this out (including run as administrator) but I still get the same crash when performing the above commands.

Like Paul I followed your instructions and have yet to get a crash. When SketchUp crashes do you get a Bug Splat? If so, are you sending them in with some identifying information so they can be linked to you?

Perhaps your graphics drivers could stand an update. Go to the Nvidia site and get the latest ones from them.

Ok I see.
I just checked and updated my graphic card driver and re-tested the file - same result.
Bugsplat file sent to Sketchup with my details.
Thanks anyway.

Maybe @colin will have time to look up your Bug Splat report to see if it identifies anything specific. Clearly there’s some difference between your system, Paul’s, and mine.

It looks like only a few crashes like the one you saw have happened to other people. Like the others, I’m not seeing the crash happen.

No crash with SU 2023 on Mc OS 12.6.3 Monterey.
