I’ve been a user for several years and update to the latest version every time one comes out. I installed Sketchup Make 2017 a couple months ago. It’s been operating fine, without issues, until yesterday. I was beginning to design a very simple frame, beginning with a simple rectangle. Seemed like the screen simply locked up. After fussing with it, restarting several times, etc. it seemed that it was simply taking a very long time to do even the simplest commands. (I haven’t been able to get past <Push/Pull>. As soon as I triple click the result to make it a component, or anything at all, it would freeze for so long I thought the computer was locking up.)
I was able to pull up a previous project, a fairly complicated model. It came up fine but, as soon as I tried to do anything, the same thing happened. Locked up in eternal think mode.
Tried pulling up an old model in a previous version (I don’t always delete the previous version.). Same thing: the model would come up but, as soon as I tried to do anything, it would freeze.
Other applications on the computer seem fine. (Operating on an older Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with Windows 10.)
I’m not a real savvy computer guy so all of the IT chatter I see in other strings leaves me feeling really, really ignorant. Any ideas???
