I am using Sketchup 2022 Pro on my macbook pro 2020 13 inch M1. My sketchup environment keeps crashing when I move components. It now is happening with a specific component every time. This is the component:
What happens is I try to move the component and allign it with the table top surface. Then at a random moment the cursor changes into a loading curser and then the application is frozen and I have to use force quit to close sketchup. It has happened 6 times in a row now.
Anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it?
Dave showed the Windows version, which lives in a tray. On Mac we don’t have trays. The equivalent window can be found at Window->Styles
Please be more specific about what you mean by “crash”. People tend to use that word for a lot of different issues, and often the difference is crucial. Do you mean that SketchUp freezes, i.e. ceases to respond? Do you mean that you get a BugSplat, and if so, are you sending the BugSplat reports in to SketchUp? Do you mean that SketchUp does a crash dump that BugSplat doesn’t catch (often an Apple crash report dialog will then result)?
If it is the third case, please share the crash report so an expert can take a look. Simply sending it to Apple won’t get prompt attention from the SketchUp team!
I don’t have any issues with your model on my Intel-based MBP, whether profiles are on or off. That makes me think there may be an issue with the implementation of profiles on the M1 graphics.
How many other apps do you have running at the time? What does the Activity Monitor report about CPU and memory usage?
I ask because if the apps you are running use too much memory, the OS will have to start “swapping” to SSD, and that dramatically slows down everything. It’s also a special problem on M1 because the CPU and GPU share the same memory, which means you could use it all up sooner. Try giving it a lot more time and see what happens.
Doing a force quit will often cause macOS to generate a crash report. Can you share the crash report? To an expert it will at least give a general idea of the source of the problem.
