SketchUp keeps disappearing on me


#1

Hi…I am a newbie to Sketch Up and trying to build when the programme just disappears.
No pop up messages, no ‘bug splat’ or anything else… just gone.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled but to no avail… a few mintues in… and presto! She’s gone!!

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

At a guess I would say it’s a problem with your graphics card.
Your profile tells me you have one that has caused problems in the past.
Check if there is an updated driver for your card.

Have a look at this thread.

Did you install it with elevated privileges by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” ?

After updating graphics driver, if still an issue, you can try switching off autosave and see if problems go away ?
Window > Preferences > General

If not try changing OpenGL settings:
Window > Preferences > OpenGL
Restart SketchUp after making changes. (I suggest only making one change at a time. Restart. Test,… repeat.)


BTW, … SketchUp is a registered product family name, and is one word with the “S” and “U” capitalized. (I corrected the topic title for ya’, but it is still missplled several places in your profile.)
