Hi, Fredo Thank you for your create this extension.

I would like to feedback for FreoGuides like this...
when I make a marking guide inside the component and click protect it then I save component and reload it places to the model. The Protection can not protect the guide when I click delete guides (Edit>delete guides). That I think it should protect the guide in components after save as together.

Thank you
Sitthikorn N.

Not very clear to me. Could you post the model so that I understand.

Bonjour Fredo,
Ce plugin est formidable et d'une utilité primordiale à couplé avec celui de D. Bur "Projections".
Je n'arrive pas à changer la couleur des guides, est-ce un bogue ?!?

Ce qui serait utile c'est de pouvoir mettre certain guide dans un groupe ou composant et pouvoir changer la couleur des guides uniquement ceux qui sont dans un groupe ou composant et pouvoir avoir plusieurs couleurs selon l'importance du guide.

Bravo pour tous ses plugins qui simplifient la vie, vos plugins sont incontournables.

Meilleures salutations

Unfortunately, Sketchup does only support a SINGLE color for ALL guides...

I'm getting the same message Ken shows. I made sure that I have the latest versions of both FredoGuides and LibFredo6 but I still get it.

Thanks Fredo, Problem solved.

P.S.: pourquoi faire des extensions gratuites qui expirent à une date donnée ?

Precisely, these extensions may become paid in the future... It's a minor inconvenience, since they are free today. Also, a good way to keep the installed base on recent versions of the script.

Before I updated I had the same issue.
I installed the update via the SketchUcation extension. However, I had to close SU and reopen it before the update would work.

This is true for most plugins, because a ne version may have to update the menu and also the part that loads when Sketchup starts.

If you can reproduce it, I'll be interested in the file.

Also, if you can leave the Ruby console opened when deleting guides...

I have uninstalled fredoguides since it is causing a problem with the operation - you need to upgrade fredo guide since the license has expired (???!) However the error still appears. And I have checked the plugin folder it is not there. However, the icon bar appears in the SK2019. What to do??

Thank you

To uninstall, please delete both the Fredo6_FredoGuides.rb file and the Fredo6_FredoGuides subfolder.

Did you try however to upgrade to the new version?

Since you restarted Sketchup, there must be another place where Sketchup take FredoGuides from.

Otherwise, it would be magic....
