Default Sketchup2017

I just received an email with a link to, and after the third try, have successfully downloaded Sketchup 2017. For personal use there is a period of 30 days free use of Sketchup Pro, then the free version thereafter.

I just downloaded it yesterday, too, after 2016 said it was available. I also had some trouble downloading, but after a couple tries, finally got it. Changes since 2016 are here:

WOW! Lots of changes and fixes.

In never could use 2016. Whenever I would launch it, the opening screen was too big for the screen and I couldn't get to the buttons at the bottom of the page. No video changes or anything would enable me to get to those buttons, so I gave up.

I will try to 2017 version and see if I have any better luck. I like the help for color blind folks like me, although I am only partially color blind. Yeah, I know. It's tough on a photographer especially the red/green stuff.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Mike...some applications (and things like projectors) prefer a certain screen display size...try this (if you haven't already) change screen size in Display properties (right click on desktop, Properties) or Control Panel, Display...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Thanks. I think I tried all the display combinations but I will check again. The 2015 version works just fine... as does every other application on the computer. Somebody decided to put the screws to me in the 2016 version!

This is a laptop I am working on with a 22 inch monitor hooked up to it. After reading all the updates and changes for 2017, I am wondering if my laptop will even pass the graphics card requirements.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Mike, I was worried about the graphics card on my laptop, too. At least on the Mac, 2017 installed without touching 2016, so I could always go back to 2016 very easily.
