Hi, I am a newbie to sketch up. I use a Macbook and a desktop screen. However when I split my screen the trial goes down by two days, so it is effectively a 15-day trial? Any tips to prevent this would be great.
I’d say Search out an older version of SkecthUp, and install that.
They start off as a Pro version—and slide into the Make version after the initial trial time expires. While the Make will have a drop in features… it will be more than usable, and you should be able to gain a very clear understanding as to how the modeling process works in SU.
I think that SU 2017 is still hosted on the Download Page… and in it’s final post-Pro fallback version, aka ‘Make’… it doesn’t expire or timeout.
I also can’t ever recall a report where the 30 day trail period dropped off, due to the Monitor count. So you should be guaranteed a full 30 days as well.
