[Plugin] Multiple Component Edit Warning

Re: [Plugin] Multiple Component Edit Warning

I check the forum most days but somehow I missed this fantaboulous helper, I love it!!!

My worst disaster was when a client wanted small changes amounting to 8 versions, then decided to go back to the original which was, you guessed it, totally screwed. Had to redraw from scratch almost.

I would happily pay for this.

Thanks Ash and Dan.

Thanks Baz, we think its handy.

Seems every time I bump into a sketchup user they lament about this issue but haven't heard of the plugin and are quite excited when I show it to them.

I should try promote it harder I guess...

I found it purely by chance under 'Text/Labeling' in the Plugin Store widget inside SU. Not very intuitive because I didn't know I needed it til then, as I knew the problem was my error, Duh!

I think you should sell it to Trimble, it should be part of the GUI just like the popups which warn of 'changing styles'/'you are about to intersect with hidden geometry'/'your model is crap, start again' etc..


Actually, I made the last one up... but what an idea for a plugin!

P'haps Chris Fulmer or TomTom will see this. Tho I have no idea whether Trim ever 'buy' plugins. I s'pect not.
Its pissing down here in the shed, I can hardly hear myself think.

There are 2 overlapping warning windows in SU 2018. Someone to confirm?

I'm not sure if the author Ash is still about...
However, it's easy to fix the error - the newer Ruby version is stricter than it was years ago !

Find the relevant file: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp NNNN\SketchUp\Plugins\CoastalConcepts_EditFlas\EditFlag.rb\
You'll need to edit the text to include your Windows user-name and change the NNNN as the relevant SketchUp version - e.g. 2021

Select that RB file and edit it using a plain-text editor - like Notepad++...
Find the lines #17 to #21 which read...
Code: Select all
unless defined?(OPT_KEY)
  VERSION  = '2.4.0'
  LOAD_TAG = Module.nesting[0].name<< ':' << File.basename(__FILE__)
  OPT_KEY  = 'Plugin_' << Module.nesting[0].name.gsub('::','_')
end

so that they read as follows.
Code: Select all
unless defined?(OPT_KEY)
  VERSION  = '2.4.0'
  LOAD_TAG = Module.nesting[0].name.dup << ':' << File.basename(__FILE__)
  OPT_KEY  = 'Plugin_' << Module.nesting[0].name.dup.gsub('::','_')
end

Note the two additions of .dup code, which copy the 'frozen-string' in the module's name and use that instead, as a frozen-string cannot now be directly changed in code, without this sidestepping...

You are, as ever, awesome. Thank you for this! I'll have to edit the plugin code this weekend when I get the chance.

I keep meaning to make the time to start writing scripts for SketchUp. Are there any ruby courses or books you'd recommend? I have Automatic SketchUp by Matthew Scarpino but I expect the version of ruby has changed a lot in the years since that's come out.
