6.4.3
Here’s what’s new in v6.4.3 (2049)!

IMPROVEMENTS
• We’ve updated the iconography that is being used to denote where your files are being stored.
– The Trimble Connect storage option is denoted by a cloud icon. Files stored in Connect for which you have view-only access will display a locked cloud icon. Files that live in Connect and are available for offline viewing will display a filled cloud icon with a checkmark.
– Files that are stored locally on device in the Sketchup app folder will display a files app icon with the SketchUp app icon overlaid atop it.
– Files stored elsewhere in the Files app, either locally, or in a 3rd party cloud service, will display a Files app icon.

BUG FIXES
• We fixed a bug that was causing SketchUp to crash when importing certain types of DWG files.
• The Offset tool offers a shortcut whereby you can double-tap after performing an offset in order to repeat the same offset in the same direction. We fixed a bug that makes this shortcut perform more reliably.
• We fixed a bug that was resulting in some weirdness when attempting to customize the radial shortcut menu.
• Other misc bug fixes & improvements.

6.3.2
Here’s what’s new in v6.3.2 (2011)!

BUG FIXES
• This update addresses several issues that surface in the Tags panel after updating to iOS 17.
• We fixed a bug that resulted in unintuitive behavior when switching between perspective and parallel projection camera modes using shortcut toolbars.
• We made a minor improvement to the USDz exporter and how it handles the visibility of tagged geometry. It’s now the case that when a tag is assigned to geometry and the tag is organized in a hidden tag folder, the geometry will not be visible in the exported USDz file. This improvement positively affects SketchUp’s AR model viewing capability.
• The update also includes a few other miscellaneous UI/UX improvements.
