Continuing the discussion from Layers into layer?:
I split this off from the previous topic as it’s a tangent. Wasn’t sure whether to put it in the “Developer” or “Extensions” category. Since the information might be useful to people who aren’t developers, I chose “Extensions”.
The previous topic caused me to wonder where extension specific data is stored. What do I mean? Here’s an example from an extension I rely on:
I use the Layers Organizer extension and I’m now wondering where the data on the order of layers and groups, and the hierarchy is maintained. Is it:
- Saved in the .skp?
If so, I would assume that the hierarchy would be available if I sent the .skp to another SketchUp user, appearing only if they also have the Layers Organizer installed and enabled.
Further question: If a 2018 file is uploaded to the 3D Warehouse, then downloaded in a earlier version, would the necessary data be available in the earlier version for Layers Organizer to recognize and use?
- Saved outside the .skp?
If so, I would assume that the hierarchy would be lost if anybody wanted to use the .skp file on another SketchUp installation, even if it also has Layers Organizer installed and enabled.
