Settings and shortcuts are ported over to the new version when you update, but extensions are not.
You can manually copy the contents of your extensions folder to the new version (omit the SketchUp-supplied extensions!) but it is better to install new compatible versions where applicable.
but as I do every year, I’ve forgotten where they are. I thought I remembered that they are kept (on a Mac) in. Users > Paul > Library (which is hidden) > … but they’re not there…
so where do i copy my LO scrapbooks and templates, and my SU templates from?!
thanks in advance!
I really would like to look forward to the annual SU upgrade. Right now, for the last few years, with frankly minimal improvements, I lose my extensions and worse, the use of my 3Dconnexion space navigator. Getting the extensions back is less painful than the SN (which I still haven’t got back) but why did we have to do this? Why not just have a true upgrade and maintain the users working environment instead of installing a new program? Or give the option to upgrade v reinstall. @TheOnlyAaron said last year it’s a good opportunity to do some housekeeping. Maybe so - but what if im already happy with my house? The next part of the pain of the annual upgrade is that I’d rather not. Id rather have the option to keep using SU 22 - WITHOUT having to pay more - under a perpetual license. But no, I have to pay for minimally useful improvements. Isn’t it time to review the whole upgrade process, SU?
There are two locations where extension get loaded from, the user appdata (~/library/Application Data on Mac) and the ProgramData (Library on Mac).
The SketchUp 2023 in the general library or programdata might not exist yet, unless you installed V-Ray.
That’s where the 3Dconnexion files should go.
Anssi is right, though (and as i mentioned in my post further up) I forget every year, and end up having to ask this forum.
I did again this year, but am now regretting it. I’ve upgraded. Reimported all my extensions (about six). Reset my templates, and got working again. Very slowly.
My Mac is getting on a bit (2019 iMac, 3.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7) but it was quite a bit faster with Layout 2022 than it is with 2023, - select something and hit a key to move it, and there is a 1 second delay before it moves…
I’m still using su 2018 because the upgrades are so painful. I tired 2020 little things, like the ability to use 2 screens didn’t work on 2020. Tech support tried to make it right and was unable because i use a docking station. other software makes upgrades seemless.
