TIG,

thanks a lot for Shape Bender, works fine now !

I've got the same problem with Didier Bur's Projections.
Do you think you could do something for us if you've got a quiet moment ? :oops:

@Chon
Edit the loader 'projection_extension.rb' file
In line#2:
Sketchup::require Sketchup.find_support_file("Plugins") + '/Projection/projection'
add a leading # to disable it:
#Sketchup::require Sketchup.find_support_file("Plugins") + '/Projection/projection'
Then add in a line below it thus:
Sketchup::require(File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), 'Projection', 'projection'))
It should now work properly from any Plugins folder's location, provided that the loader rb and the folder of other files are in the same Plugins folder... [although the rbs format for the main code file is an perhaps unknown quantity]...

Hi,
Ive been using the additional plugins folder with great success until recently. Im now not able to install extensions and am not sure what the problem is. Ive downloaded a couple of .rbz to the folded I have designated as my additional plugins folder. I have then gone to Window>Preferences>Extensions and gone to install extensions but Im now getting a message that tells me "This extension will have the ability to access the filesystem on your computer. Do not grant access to this lightly; be sure you trust the author. Do you want to install the extension." If I click yes it then takes me to an admin user name and password page? I had this working fine before but now for some reason SU won't load the plugins in this folder. Can anyone help..?
I have deleted the 000_aditional plugins folder and have the following installed in my main plugins folder;
AdditionalPluginFolders - v4.2a - 23 Oct 13
LibFredo6.rbz
Can anyone help me to resolve this ...?

The native Preferences > Extensions > Installer ALWAYS tries to use the main Plugins folder - you may not have sufficient permissions to do that - especially on a corporate or educational network...
The SketchUcation Plugin Store toolset offers two possible options:
1. A ../Plugins/SketchUcation submenu utility named 'Archive Installer'... this lets you auto-install from a RBZ [or ZIP] archive you have already downloaded onto your PC... and if you have a custom-plugins folder set-up it offers that as a potential destination...
2. The SketchUcation Plugin Store's dialog which opens within SketchUp itself also offers you the choice of any set-up custom-plugins folder a destination for it's AutoInatll too...

Thanks TIG - will play with this tomorrow. Have set the additional plugins setting to force it to ask if I want to use the non-standard plugin folder every time SU opens which seems to work for now.
Thanks

This is not the hard part :roll:
Search the Plugins forum, or see the PluginStore - search that for its instructions and download too :?
Also read its instructions carefully... and find / get the support 'Lib' and install that too...

Please complete your User-Profile...

If you have v2014, on PCs the default Plugins folder is now within your User path, so you should have suitable permissions...
But in earlier PC versions the Plugins folder is within the Program Files folder, and is therefore always restricted [unless the permissions are changed].

Assuming you have v8/v2013...
You need to convince the IT guys to install at least this one script [+ the LibFredo] in the main restricted Plugins folder.
It will load at startup and allow you to specify another Plugins folder for your own use.
You will then be able to install plugins into that folder [after a restart] manually.
Change RBZ to ZIP and extract the contents, keeping files in subfolders as they are shipped...

Unfortunately the native RBZ installer always uses the default Plugins folder, so you can't use that when you are restricted.
BUT if you have the SketchUcation Plugin Store tools installed, thereafter you can AutoInstall any downloaded RBZ using the 'Archive Installer' available from its menu - you will be offered your additional plugins folder in a dialog...
If you use the PluginStore dialog itself [run within SketchUp] you will also be offered your additional plugins folder for that AutoInstallation, without recourse to having a physical RBZ file at all... ;)

If you mean the v2014 default 'Plugins' FOLDER... then if you Download the RBZ version of any Plugin from the PluginStore, then you can use the v2014 Preferences > Extensions > Install... button to automatically do the installation for you [remember that most of Fredo's tools also need his 'Lib', that is also available from the PluginStore...].
If you install the SketchUcation PluginStore toolset [see Resouces...] then you can then browse and AutoInstall Plugins from within SketchUp, without even having to download the RBZ...
That also includes a useful submenu item to open the Plugins folder for you, should you ever need to look into it...

Where in the heck do I find !AdditionalPluginFolders - I've searched the SketchUp Extension Warehouse as well as setchucation and the internet.
I have SketchUp 2014 installed on my Win8.1 system.
Looking at my system I do see C:\Program Files (x86)\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\Plugins\!AdditionalPluginFolders.rb and it is dated 3/4/2014 Do I already have the latest installed? How can I verify? Is it installed in the correct location?
Sorry but I'm lost.

Sorry but I'm lost.
Where did the C:\Program Files (x86)\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\Plugins folder come from ?
It is NOT made by SketchUp in SketchUp v2014.
It is NEVER used !
If you have made it manually, then please remove it - it will not auto-load any Plugins from within it anyway.
If you have copied it over from say SketchUp v2013, then there is a good chance that some of its Plugins will be incompatible if reloacted in the correct folder!
Get the latest versions of all Plugins and install those into the correct location...
Most Plugins have been made compatible with v2014, but you need the newest versions of them.

The default Plugins folder [from which any Plugins auto-load as SketchUp starts up] can be found using this snippet in the 'Ruby Console':
Sketchup.find_support_file('Plugins')
It is typically returned as:
C:/Users/YourUserName/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2014/SketchUp/Plugins

With ALL SketchUp versions since v8M2 you can AutoInstall RBZ archived Plugins using the Preferences > Extensions > Install... button...
This is SketchUp 101 :roll:
You don't then need to worry about this as the correct default Plugins folder is always used...

Aside - there is a potential 'shared' Plugins folder, which can be located in:
C:/ProgramData/SketchUp/SketchUp 2014/
BUT that is NOT made by SketchUp.
If you [or an Installer App] add it manually, then its contents are also auto-loaded as SketchUp's starts up.
This folder is not normally used - each User get their own Plugins folder.
The native AutoInstaller always puts RBZ contents into the User's Plugins folder.
The ProgramData Plugins folder is only useful when shared Plugins are used between several Users on that one PC.

If you get the 'SketchUcation PluginStore Toolset' [install it from the RBZ downloadble from the Resources submenu item above]... then you can use that to AutoInstall Plugins directly - skipping the RBZ download altogether.
Unlike the native AutoInstaller it also spots if you have any additional Plugins folders setup, into which you might want to install the Plugin, and it offers those alternatives where appropriate...

Fredo's Additional Plugins Folder tool needs to load from the 'default Plugins folder' [which always auto-loads].
This tool then allows you to specify custom Plugins folders - such as Dropbox or GoogleDrive - from which your synced Plugins can be auto-loaded as SketchUp starts on any PC...

But before you jump into the world of Additional Plugins folders please ensure you have the proper defaults setup, and you understand how they work... :?

Hi Fredo :) having a slight issue with your plugins, I recently decided to update what is in my system and now whenever I start SU I get an error message from LibFredo6 saying some files are in error and cannot load, please see attached

I have not had this issue before, and I have attempted to redo the install 3 times now with same result…
both using the old way of just putting in the plugins folder and running the auto install from within plugin store, also updated to the latest version…

osx 10.8, macbook pro, Sketchup8Pro

any help greatly appreciated

PS the plugins do seem to be working at least the ones that load…
Thanks

You seem to have FreeScale still present in your plugins. This is a very old version of FredoScale. I suggest you remove the subfolder and rb file.

love love love this plug in.

the only thing that would make it even easier for me.

when I drag the !AdditionalPluginFolders.rb to different computers I have to set up the file paths each time.

we have 4 folders of plug into load depending on needs.

Is there a pref/config file I need to copy across as well so that the paths are

Thanks for your kind words.
The alternate directories are stored in registry, not in a config file. So I am afraid you need to key in the directories again when moving from computer to computer.

What we did in the office was find the registry file and created one for 2013/2014 and put it on the server. Each time we need to install SKP and !AdditionalPluginFolders on a new computer, all we have to do is double click the registry for the correct version which then installs the correct path for the !AdditionalPluginFolders to find the other plugins.
