How can I use my paid sketchup Pro as Timble does NOT grant me access…
Tired to waste hours with this issue
The system always tells me “You have exceeded your allowed activations”
Manage Activations does not help.
I am obliged to work with “SketchUp Studio 30 day trial” as the paid version does NOT opens
I finally got to login BUT I tell you that this is a real headache.
I am a 20 years Sketchup customer…
It Takes 20 Years to Build a Reputation and 5 Minutes to Ruin it…
Bye Bye Sketchup.
And the problems are recurrent and this ONLY happens with Sketchup.
Or it opens my files as a READ-ONLY file with a lock or cannot save my files
This is very frustrating and I wonder if I will not lose my files.
The file with the ~ at the end is the backup file. If SketchUp failed to save the backup into the folder where the original is, then you would see that error. As reading the original file is also saying that it is read only, that could explain why the backup doesn’t get saved.
What happens if you work on a file that is in your Downloads folder, or on the Desktop?
I can save the files on the desktop but then, when I need to move the files to the right folder to order my work, it does not work anymore and gives me error messages.
This is new as I use Sketchup since 20 years and it never happened to me before…
What should I do?
Do you work at a company that is big enough to have IT support, and someone could check out your machine to see what is different about those locations?
In any Finder window you can Command-click, or right-click, on the title of the window, and it will show the path to that folder. Could you do that for the folder that isn’t saving ok, and take a screenshot of the list you’re shown? You can type Command-shift-4, then drag a rectangle around the list, to screenshot only that part of the screen.
What Dave said. Also, someone recently had problems when using parentheses in a file name. You have (All Files) as part of the path. I tested both things, and I don’t have a problem, but my macOS settings may be different to yours.
