SketchUp crash after scenes manager opening during thumbnails update

I finally found a solution for this problem, (there where more than two topics about this issue, but they were already closed):

Always when I wanted to open the scenes-tab, SketchUp crashed during the update of the thumbnails.
This happened every time, working in a model with already set 2 or more scenes.
I did the following to solve this.

  1. Open a new empty SketchUp file besides your opened model (where the crash happens).
  2. Create one or two empty scenes, and start the Scene-Manager in this model, because the content is empty and the file that small, SketchUp should not crash this time.
  3. When its done, you NOW can change to your first model and do the same there, the Scene-Manager should not crash the whole program anymore… try it
