I have been using SpaceNavigator with SketchUp for 30 days now. A scheduled event occurred this morning when 3DxWare loaded notifying me of this fact and giving me the option to upgrade to the Standard version for a fee.
I had upgraded from SketchUp 5 to 6 at the same time that I installed SN (having waited for the new driver release which supports my Win2000 OS). Over the past month I have occasionally noticed strange things working in SU but they seemed random and seldom, and difficult to pin down given the many changes - new version of SU, new SN driver, and working primarily with converted (v5 to v6) models. Since my 30 day notice, problems have become chronic. The two biggest problems are:
(1) the file drop down menu remains covering the tool icons after loading an existing model. Tools can be selected by clicking on an icon or icon location not visible because of the file menu.
(2) clicking a scene button (like Home) causes the model to shift slightly and then freeze. Tools cannot be selected while it is in this state but SN orbiting appears to be unaffected.
The persistence of either of these conditions is immediately rectified and all subsequent actions (selected while frozen) appear to occur if I right click on the 3DxWare icon in the System Tray.
I have re-installed the SN driver (using repair feature) to no avail.
While I am not convinced that it is entirely the 3Dconnexion software, I am sure it is somehow involved. This is now happening with SU5, SU6, SU6 using v5 models and new SU6 models. If 3DxWare is disabled, no problems occur.
Any suggestions as to what may be my problem?
