This either didn’t install correctly or isn’t compatible with Sketchup 8. Anyway, it’s giving an error when I start the application. Sketup 8 doesn’t have an extension manager that I can see and the extension isn’t listed in the list of plugins in Window - Preferences so I can’t uninstall it.
In File Explorer look for Program Files (x86)>Google>Google SketchUp>8>Plugins. It should be installed there if it was installed correctly. Look to see if there’s both a .rb file as well as a folder for the extension and delete both.
Going forward you should check out extensions before you install them. The page for DP Line Styler shows compatibility with SU2016 and later.
Yes, just noticed that compatibility version list after installing it. Is there a line styler compatible with v8?
Not that I’m aware of. What is it you actually want to do?
There is a dp_line_styler folder aswell as a dp_line_styler.rb file.
So delete both of them as I wrote.
I just want to draw some dotted construction lines, but I guess I can use the tape measure tool to create guides. However it would be nice to be able to change their colour or style. It’s not a big deal because I can add them to an exported JPG image in PSP.
Select an edge, right click on it, choose Divide, and divide it into a desired number of segments. Erase or hide every other short segment to leave a dashed line appearance. You can then apply a color if you adjust the Edge color in the style to By Material. It would be a good idea to group the edge segments so you don’t inadvertantly merge them with other geometry.
Ok, thanks. I’ll try that. I deleted the .rb file and folder and Sketchup is no longer giving an error on startup.
Sketchup 8 is over 10 years old, it was the last version released by google if my memory doesn’t fail, a lot plug-ins have been released since then and most of the ones that were released with skp 8 have already been updated by the developers, on official extension stores like the extension warehouse or the sketchucation store is going to be difficult to find compatible plug-ins for they version, maybe you could find making a deep search on google. I would recommend you to get a newer version like the 2017, that was the last version that had a free desktop software, it’s not available on the sketchup website anymore but a lot of people are still using it, if you ask someone on the forum could give you the installer or look for it on the World Wide Web, you’ll have a lot more compatible extensions with that version.
Unless @Eugbug is using a 32-bit version of Windows 10. The last SketchUp available for 32-bit operating systems was 2016, newer versions are 64-bit only.
