It is hoped to improve the stability of the asset library window

  • Every time we place an asset, the asset library window will automatically close in many cases, which needs to be opened again, which is very troublesome. We hope you can fix this BUG, thank you very much


  • I'm sorry to hear about that. It is advised to simply press "Escape" on your keyboard after placing assets, this opens up the window again from being minimized. Although, if you select tools in SketchUp (or pretty much do anything else in the SketchUp interface besides placing assets) while the library window is minimized, it will indeed close automatically, so just make sure that you're not editing anything before pressing "Escape" to get out of our placement mode. :)


    After being out of placement mode you should be able to use SketchUp as usual and the Library window should be unaffected.

  • I would love it if this window was persistent. Frequently I will click onto another tool and then have to re-open and research for the items. I imagine the auto-minimizing is to keep the window from blocking the SketchUp window - however, if you have multiple monitors this is unneeded and it just becomes a nuisance.


    On a related note - while the asset window always auto-minimizes, the settings window not only does not minimize but always stays on top of every other window. Can we have this one able to go behind other windows just like all the other Enscape windows? Better window behavior consistency would be much appreciated.


    EDIT: I would like to add that frequently, pressing ESC does not bring the window back. This appears to be due to the fact that pressing any key or mouse button besides left-click exits the window, even if the "place Enscape object" mode is still active. For example, using Shift-MMB to pan, or just MMB to orbit the view while in this mode still exits the window (but not the placement mode), such that pressing ESC once you're done doesn't bring it back. This proves to be very frustrating to work with. At the very least, please have the window not close when activating view manipulation tools in SketchUp!

    i just wanted to add that the window only closses if you change view while or after placing.. if you change the view while the window of the AL is active its not a problem...


    would be nice if teh window would reopen also after a view change though...

    Agreed. The Asset Window seems to be a little too eager to get out of our way completely.

  • Thank you very much for all the feedback which I'll of course forward accordingly. +1 from you too, to the topic renderwiz !
