SketchUp and macOS Mojave (10.14)



Hi Colin, with .pdf export or print we perform a Hidden Line Render to the SketchUp Model. As such, this is a true vector rendering of the SketchUp model therefore antialiasing does not come into play in this case.



I found a good solution! Vector Printing.


Mojave is officially released now. What’s the latest on official support for Sketchup Pro?


I support you @martin on that!

What about SU vs Mojave? Is it worth moving to it or SU will be only app not supporting new macOS :wink: ?..


I just upgraded. From what I can see early on everything seems to work fine.

Hey, that’s nice. So nothing what @mchandler mentioned is valid? I also wonder how about combination of Mojave, SU and V-Ray but this is not a topic for this forum ;).


Well I haven’t tried that stuff about printing yet.
Vray seems to be the only thing that doesn’t really work for me. I think it has something to do with that licensing service thing held things up at High Sierras release too.


Hi all,

SketchUp 2018 has a known issue that leads to a one-time crash of SketchUp 2018 on MacOS Mojave in the first 10-15 minutes (or so). All other issues that have been previously reported on this forum have been resolved by the official Mojave release.

Thanks for clarification @travis1! By one-time you mean “one-time ever” or “one time every time you start SU” :slight_smile: ?



I’d be interested to know which was meant too.


It’s one-time only, not, “one time every time you start SU.”


seems that Adobe InDesign CC is affected by something similar related to plugins.


What about 3D-Connexion tools like the 3D mouse and 3D navigator?
Anyone did test it with SU?


Word is that 3DConnection does not yet have a driver that is compatible with Mojave. They say it will be ready “soon”…


Layout crashes when trying to input text on a Mac recently updated to Mojave. I open the program, write some text, deselect the text box, and when I attempt to re-enter the text box or place a new one, the program crashes.

• The problem machine is running Version 16.0.19913, on AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB.

• This issue is not present on another machine, running Version 16.1.2418, on AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2048 MB.

When I check for updates, a dialog box appears with the message “LayOut was unable to obtain the latest version information.” Please help.


Download and install the last maintenance 16.2 here:


Mike beat me to it. :wink:


Hi hope Su18 is running perfectly now. How is layout?


Please confirm SketchUp 2018 (Version 18.0.16976) is compatible with macOS Mojave. I was unable to find anything specific, nor Systems Requirements, on SU site.

SU has always been good with macOS update compatability but I need assurance my work will not be interrupted. Reinstalling a previous version of an app is one thing, but OS. Not what I want to deal with right now. I usually have to wait 2-3 months for ACAD but they actually came through.
