Dynamic Component options panel

Dynamic Component options panel

Postby shawb » Thu Jan 30, 2020 4:54 pm

I have come up against an issue regarding the DC options panel. Clicking on a component will display it's attributes in the DC attribute panel but the Options panel indicates that no component has been selected. Searching online has shown that this behaviour has been seen before but I could not find a definitive solution.

To date I have tried the following:

Uninstalled the DC plugin and installed the latest version from the Extension Warehouse.
Ran the Sketchup 'Checkup' app to make sure my system is adequate.
Checked that my graphics card driver is up to date.
Downloaded the latest SU Installer and ran the repair option (Run as Administrator).
Disabled all my installed plugins in the Extension Manager and restarted SU.
Uninstalled SU and then installed afresh. (Run as Administrator)

Occasionally, in a new unsaved model, I can create a DCs both with and without user options and both panels will populate. However, on saving the Options panel reverts to not seeing a selected DC.

The Ruby Console returns the following when selecting a DC:

Error: #<NoMethodError: undefined method `deleted?' for #<Sketchup::Model:0x0001efeaf23df8>>

Any ideas on fixing this would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like I posted in the wrong forum section. Apologies, can it be re-directed?

After yet another go at this I found the following. The Component Options and Component Attributes panels can be opened at any point in a modelling session including after selecting/deselecting existing components (not necessarily dynamic components) or creating new components. However, the Options panel must be opened first. Any component selected will now show up in the Options panel. Before the Attributes panel can be launched a component (any) must be selected. Once the Attribute panel is launched the selected component can be deselected without any inputs to either panel. Thereafter, components can be selected, attributes added etc. Both panels will work as expected. Both panels can be dismissed if not needed further but to relaunch them the same sequence must be observed.

Maybe this behaviour is a quirk of just my own setup but the procedure that I found (stumbled across) is certainly not in any way an explanation.
