Sketchup Pro doesn’t offer revisioning other than silently remembering some version of the state of the model if the app crashes. This is of little help if you bugger things up in some other way and want to get back to a prior state of the model. Consequently, I tend to build models in new directories for each model or related set of models and Save As versions as I go, e.g. “drum stand 01”, “drum stand 02”, etc.
Here’s the problem: why doesn’t the app remember the directory the current model file exists in? It always wants to take me to the directory the app started up in, rather than that for the model itself. This is unnecessarily clumsy. Aside from going to the “Recent Places” menu on the dialog (which requires positive action on my part), manually navigating to the right directory (which is really annoying), or starting the app on the one model I’m working on (why?), why can’t the app remember the directory the model lives in and go there, always?
