I am using Sketchup for Web, and saving my projects in the Sketchup folder in Trimble Connect. There are two different computers that I am often using to work on the same projects. Until recently, this worked fine. I could work on a project on one computer, save it, and later open it up on a different computer.
However, recently this has stopped working. Now, whenever I open up a project from Trimble Connect, it always opens up the version of that project that was last saved on that particular device. So, if the last time I worked on that project was from a different device, it will open up an old version of the project, instead of the up-to-date version.
This happens regardless of whether or not I open the project from “Recent Projects”, or navigate to “Trimble Connect” and open it from there.
I can open the most recent version if I click on the three dots, select “History”, and then select the most recent version of the file. However, it opens it up as an untitled project, which I then have to use “Save As” to overwrite the original file.
I have tried this with several different projects, and it always exhibits the same behaviour.
Any thoughts on how to correct this? Or is this just a bug that was introduced to SketchUp for Web with some recent update?
After more testing, neither work-around works consistently. The only solution that I have found that consistently works is to load the most recent version from the file history, and then overwrite the original file. The workflow for this is as follows:
Select the three dots under the project name
Choose the most recent version of the file from the revision history and select “Show in editor”
An untitled project will open, which is the most recent version of the project
Select “Save”, and choose the same name as the original project
The untitled version of the project will overwrite the original project
You will now have the most up-to-date version of the project.
