Copy and paste not working between files

Postby zain01 » Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:03 am

Hi, can anyone tell me why copy and paste between files has stopped working?

It will still work with a simple shape but when i try with anything more complicated it doesnt work.

I have reset the pboard in my activity monitor to no avail.

Im using sketchup pro 2018 on a mac running high sierra

Many thanks in advance

I know you are on a mac but have you tried the standard pc fix of rebooting your computer?

Hi Box, yes tried that, turns out somehow the wardrobe door i was trying to move was the problem, somehow it got corrupted or maybe the mb count was to high, it did have quite a big psd texture on it, must try it without the texture and see if that works but i just ended up redrawing it. thanks

Maybe you just didn't wait long enough. A few months back I was working on a project which included a huge component that I had drawn in a separate file. I used Copy and Paste to insert the component into the main model and it took a good 30 to 40 seconds to appear.

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.
