My texture palette has suddenly lost all the textures that came with the program originally. What gives? No asphalt and concrete, no tiles, no B& W patterns, nothing. It only has a minimal set of textures now.
Screenshot of the Materials Palette, please ?
have you ‘clicked’ on the ‘brick’ and checked the dropdown menu?
that’s where all the SU materials live in the ‘Colors’ window on a mac…
Indeed, that looks like the materials that should be in the SketchUp application bundle are missing. Are you the type who is willing to go snooping down there, or a non-techie user?
copy this line off code and paste into SU menu >> Windows >> Ruby Console [bottom text input field]
it should return a list of all available, what do you see…
Somehow, the other materials are indeed missing. You could try reinstalling SketchUp, which should recreate them.
