|June 2014; for a year now I get the beach ball on exit.|
If you're considering upgrading to Sketchup Pro 2013, don't. Continuing from yesterday.
It's broken by bad licensing methods. Help and support you pay for (listed for $95 in my invoice) are a joke. The main site now has a "licensing troubleshooter," that wastes a half hour of your time -- and no connections to real people or solutions.
Because there aren't any; Trimble has broken this formally great software and is now selling it to gullible people like me.
Sketchup Pro 2013 is NOT backwards compatible with Sketchup 8. That's what evil companies do. So I can't even go back to the old software, the stuff that worked.
I support nine good jobs, with a deadline two days away, with pencil and paper now.
Trimble, shame on you, fix this.
UPDATE! Got a great email from Tommy, asking me to check OS X disk permissions. Done this a dozen times. Same behavior on Windows 7. This "help" has been going on for a week.
