Alright. This really making me really angry! SketchUp has been crashing for the dumbest of reasons lately, and it is really setting me back in locomotive model production. Here are some reasons that it crashes:
Opening SU’s internal Components window (Window<Components). This will happen at random times, and it does not matter what has happened prior to the crash.
Hiding Entities: This is not just hiding entities by holding Shift while the Eraser tool is selected, but it also happens when hiding entities selected in Entity Info, where SketchUp will crash when the checkbox is ticked. If there are any methods of hiding entities, it is likely that this will cause a model to crash, too. This happens at any given time, and it does not matter what has been done prior to the crash.
Repetitive Commands: If it is erasing edges, making components, copying entities, drawing rectangles, or whatever it is that is done repetitively, it will crash after a few minutes of that repetitive action. For instance, rotating several entities in place (let’s say 20, or so). SketchUp will crash upon a repeat, or similar action, to the previous step. This will happen regardless of what was happening before the initiation of the “string of repetitive tasks”.
I’d like to call upon these issues, because these are some reasons that SketchUp crashes, and I couldn’t help but notice how often this happens, because it would happen nearly every few days, especially when I’m least expecting it. If the SketchUp team could take a look at these issues, I would love to see some insight on how these could be fixed, or whether or not these problems have happened before. Again, this is extremely frustrating, and other people show frustration when SketchUp does crash.
Note: All of these issues listed are here because every time SketchUp crashed, I would be doing these exact things.
