I’ve been unable to place my toolbar extensions/plugins without them reverting to their undocked behavior the next time I start Sketchup.
I originally installed v2018 as my username - same as for 2017 version back in March and had no similar trouble then.
Initially I tried reinstalling su2018 with “Install as Admin”. - didn’t work
Next I tried running Sketchup itself as admin ‘every time’, but still didn’t work, so I’ve put it back to running as my username
Checked permissions of the C:\Users\myUsername\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2018\SketchUp\SharedPreferences.json file - my username has full read and write permissions. So does the login_session.dat file.
Checked the Su2017 Templates folder and found my saved template. No files in the 2018 Templates folder, so I created a new template of Architectural Style there, hoping this would ‘kick things in’.
When su2018 starts up this time, there is room and spacing on the toolbar to place the plugins, as I had just laid them out but they don’t load into the toolbar. (See attached image)
Additional info: Just noticed that whenever sketchup 2018 starts, the screen will show sketchup until it’s about to load the toolbar, then whatever Windows screen I have in the background will move to the front, then the plugins will load, undocked. It appears to be a window-focus bug.
