SketchUp Finally Gets Thumbnail Previews in Windows Explorer


#1

Recently upgraded to SketchUp Pro 2015 64bit and discovered my models finally have thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer!

Some have argued that thumbnails aren’t necessary if you name your files (properly) with a good description. I find it easier to locate the SKP I’m looking for by scanning a folder of thumbnails rather than file names. Personal preference.

While I am grateful to finally have thumbnails, is there a way to prevent them from being “instagrammed” into a square and instead maintain the aspect ration of the window being used when the file was saved? Thumbnails of older models saved with earlier versions of SketchUp seem to show the proper aspect but are cropped square when saved with SU 2015.

Thanks for the thumbnails.
