How do I find out if a Plug-In is causing troubles?

If SketchUp Pro behaves instable or you experience other weird behaviour, it may be a good idea to check whether an installed plug-in is the culprit.

To do this, start up SketchUp Pro with plug-ins disabled:

  • In SketchUp Pro, open the Ruby Console Window (Window > Ruby Console)
  • Type in exactly: Sketchup.plugins_disabled = true
  • Exit SketchUp Pro and relaunch it
All plugins other than those supplied by Google / Trimble should be disabled and you can now try to recreate the bug. If you can't, the problem is in one of the plugins. To isolate the problematic plugin:
  • In SketchUp Pro, open the Ruby Console Window (Window > Ruby Console)
  • Type in exactly: Sketchup.plugins_disabled = false
  • Exit SketchUp Pro and relaunch it
SketchUp Pro should now launch with the plugins enabled again. Now de-stall the plug-ins one-by-one and launch SketchUp Pro every time you've de-installed one. If the problems disappear, you've found the plugin that causes problems.
