I'm not... Try looking if you have the file extensions.rb or sketchup.rb in your plugins folder. If so delete it.

Please don't use SCF-Powerbar [it's not anything to do with SCF officially] or even have it installed...
viewtopic.php?p=112024#p112024
It installed old files in the Plugins folder when the SketchUp-installed newer ones were needed in Tools !
Double check you have none of those in Plugins [e.g. sketchup.rb, extensions.rb]
It was removed last year - it caused too many problems...
It was a known 'rogue' long before that...
Find its rb file in Plugins and remove it.
Get in touch with [PM] its author, CADfather, if you need more advice...

I cannot give up my SCF PowerBar... It has a paste in place button TIG. A Paste in Place Button! I haven't run into any issue with it that I know of.

Oh wait... That's SCF Standard with the past in place. I don't use Power Bar as much. I use the drop, component stringer and line extrude on it though.

BUT hopefully you have NOT got the 'rogue files' that ill-advisedly come with it, inside its ZIP - like sketchup.rb and extensions.rb - which it stupidly puts into the Plugins folder, when SketchUp already puts newer versions of them into the Tools folder as it itself is installed [any versions in those system scripts in the Plugins folder take precedence when loading, and can thereby break SketchUp in unexpected/subtle ways]... :roll:

???

There's a Paste in Place on the Edit menu. I put in a Feature Request for it (in V4, I think) because I'd been using it in Corel for years...and we got it. :D

It's a conflict.

Removing all plugins from the plugins folder and it works.

Now how can I figure out which one it is...


Even this was a conflict. It's also possible that something gets tossed in virtual store (by improper permissions at plugin -folder). So it's good to use thomthom's VirtualStore Check viewtopic.php?t=48399 too

Yes Alan there is one on the edit menu, but I hate using menus. I have 6 square foot of screen... I like toolbars. The SCF Standard has a Paste in Place button on it with the copy, paste, cut features.

sorry for any incovenience - that toolbar is very old, i think i made it in SU6 or 7 - that's why those files are there - you needed them then. eventually i didn't get round to update it properly + was inactive in the forum for a long time.

Inconvenience? No way... I use those bars every single time I use sketchup... Which is almost every day. very convenient.

it's simply awesome ... just made a pine oak . ok I am still struggling to get my leaves where I want them and how they should hang but I am stubborn and will get there . my only complaint is that there is no possibilities to edit a project back to a previous state if something goes not as wanted while experimenting with the settings , or did I miss something ?

Hi Gilles,
When creating/testing a new tree, you can save it as a new template (right click/save as template) each time you are satisfied with the result. This way you can restart from your last template saved.
i'm really late... but still want to release new version before the end of the year, at least in beta stage.

Your TreeMaker trees look really nice but your link does not goto files for download.
Not blocked just does not select and is greyed out. :?:

I am trying to load Tree Maker on my Mac and cannot work out where to put the files that come with the download. I have asked 3Darcstudio but they don't seem to know about Macs. I use Plugin manager.
Thanks

Macintosh HD> Library> Application Support> Google SketchUp 8> SKetchUp> Plugins

Paste "3darcstudio" folder and "3darcstudiotreeloader.rb" into the Plugins folder.

Where I have written Google SketchUp 8 please substitute for whatever version you are using. You may be using 2013 for example so obviously don't paste the ruby and folder into any previous versions of sketchup.

Oli has answered for v8...** :?

Please fill in your User Profile. We don't know your SketchUp version... or OS [other than MAC].

If you have v8M2 or newer and the SketchUcation PluginStore tools, then get the ZIP downloaded and use the submenu Archive Installer... which will install it all in the right places for you. BUT see below about 'permissions'...***

OR select the ZIP file and convert it into an RBZ by changing it's file suffix.
Then use Preferences > Extensions > Install button to install it all in the right place for you.

Alternatively extract all of the ZIP's contents into a temp folder, keeping all of any subfolder's contents intact - never move files out of their subfolders, this is sure to break the tool as it loads.
Now move ALL of the temp folder's contents into your Plugins folder, carefully following the 'intact rule'...

**To find your Plugins folder...
In the Ruby Console type [or copy+paste]: Sketchup.find_support_file("Plugins")

The path it returns can be copy+pasted into the Finder's Go to Folder...
Because we don't know your exact set up it will vary...
The v8 example's "pattern" is applicable backwards to 7 etc, but the tree for v2013 is quite different - there's no 'Google' in the path - just 'SketchUp'...
BUT it will always be in a 'Lib' folder tree...

***Permissions...
If it's in your User...Lib tree [likely for more recent versions] you should already have FULL Read/Write permissions to that Plugins folder in 'Get Info'.
If it's the older set up's HD Lib tree you will probably need to reset your Plugins folder's permissions to FULL Read/Write.
Remember to make the FULL permissions filter down to apply to all contents as well...
Lib folders can also be hidden - depending on your Finder settings - check the option to show Lib folders... Shortcut your Plugins folder to the Finder's side-bar to make accessing it easier in the future...

Assuming you have been able to find and access your Plugins folder now move the files/subfolders over...
IF you have previously mis-installed some files/subfolder contents you need to remove them as their loading out of sequence could break SketchUp as it starts...

Provided you have suitable FULL permissions to the Plugins folder it's best to use the simplest way - Extensions > Install... button, or the SketchUcation Archive Installer...
If you are stuck on an earlier version of Sketchup consider upgrading to a newer version, or learn to do a 'manual install' properly...

Hello all, I'm new actually, first post :-) I'm trying to make a Christmas tree with this, But I don't have the right leaves + in the user guide it looks like there's already a Christmas tree template. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out where the templates are and how to use them. So 2 questions: How do I use the templates, (tree00, tree 01 etc.) and where could I get the other leaves that are shown in the user guide that don't come with the download OR how would I go about making it so that leaves I built myself would be useable. Thanks!
I'm running sketchup 8 free on windows 7.

I was working on a project to update a church that required a "Star Pine" and could not find a model anywhere. I happened upon this thread and downloaded Tree Maker. In less than an hour I had a tree that was more than adequate to match the existing tree (at least from the distances I needed).
VERY USEFUL - Thank you and keep up the great work!!
