Known Issues

  • If you are on a Mac and the icons do not display, you need to install the plugin to the Users/username/Library/Application Support/Google Sketchup/SketchUp/Plugins folder
  • Bug splats can occur when using other plugins such as SketchyFFD, JointPushPull, Offset On Surface, etc. while editing a subdivision proxy. It is recommended to only use the standard SketchUp tools (and the tools included with this plugin) while editing a subdivision proxy.
  • Bug splats can occur while using the 'Extrude' tool when multiple faces are selected on a proxy.
  • Bug splats can occur when using the 'Knife Tool'
  • Using the 'Subdivide Selection' tool may cause bugsplats or SketchUp to hang in rare situations.
  • If you 'Undo' an operation while editing a subdivision proxy, you will not be able to use the 'Redo' command.
  • If you cut and paste a proxy, it will no longer behave as a proxy. You must select it and then click the 'Subdivide and Smooth' icon to re-create the proxy.
