SketchUp version : 2016
Skatter version (Skatter dialog > Options > About) : 1.4.2
OS : Win 7 Ultimate SP 1
Description of the issue : Sketchup hangs on Start up
Are you able to reproduce the issue every time? (If yes, how?) : Yes, below
Error in Ruby Console? (Window > Ruby Console) : Wouldn’t know.
I have encountered a major problem that crashes Sketchup on start up everytime. Here’s how ->
- Create a new file with dimensions in meters.
- Pick any skatters from the library and skatter the proxies only on a surface (even a 1x1m square). From Skatter’s render list, uncheck the newly created skatter (which should be the only skatter anyway).
- Save and close the file.
- Open above file, change dimensions to millimeters, then save+close
- Open the file. Sketchup hangs and subsequently the computer, solution being a hard reset.
The above procedure is just for replicating the bug. I encountered it while working on a major file. I had to lose data after the hang.
Now, the only solution I have so far is disabling skatter from the extensions menu and moving the content to a new file.
I imagine the error is as a result of unit conversion, and would like to request for a way to clear skatter data from a Sketchup file.
