Save as legacy version

Postby huajiet » Thu Feb 16, 2017 12:38 pm

Hi Sketchucators, need your help:

I use SketchUp Make Pro 2014 on my work desktop, and a SketchUp 2016 (free) on my home laptop. I normally work on files synced to the cloud. To avoid version conflicts, I wrote a simple script that enables me to save in version 8 using the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+S. However, being human, sometimes I still forget.

How can I write a script that will remind me to save as version 8 every time I close a working file? i.e. Instead of simply reminding me to save my work, SketchUp will remind me to save in a particular version when I close the file.

Anyone? Much thanks!

It is possible to have a plugin not only remind you, but to actually save the model as v2014 whenever the model is saved by normal methods (using File > save, or ctrl-s.)

I'll post something hopefully today.

One problem though is a doubling of the save time since the model will be saved once as the default version, then again as the v2014 version. So maybe this is not the best way.
