I’ve come across this before and don’t know why, but in certain models I can only use the text tool 2-3 times, and after that, as soon as I click place - the text disappears… I have to close and reopen the document, or open a new document and use that one specifically for my text - copy and paste back and forth… bit of a pain.
Anything I might be missing?
Thanks in advance.
Looking at your other topic threads, it indicates issues with your Radeon drivers and OpenGL.
Unfortunately, AMD/ATI 64-bit drivers generally have problems with the 64-bit OpenGL libraries. If you were on a PC, I’d recommend switching to the 32-bit SketchUp edition. But, with a Mac you cannot do this.
Whether or not the AMD driver is the issue depends on who developed the driver. Unless things changed, Apple produced their own drivers for the AMD cards used in Macs. So the problems on Window machines with AMD cards did not happen on Macs.
That said, the OP’s issues do sound like driver issues. Update the computer with all the latest and greatest from Apple.
Great reply and bit of detective work, thank you.
I was having that weird graphics issue (faces seemed to be on top of one another when zooming around the scene), and was advised to turn Use Hardware Acceleration on, which corrected that issue. Currently, Use Fast Feedback is off.
