How to repro
Please provide steps to replicate the issue. These steps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.
A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.
- Down load copies of Sketchup 2014 and 2015 Make. Create a simple drawing, a single line will do. Then try to select it. Sketchup 2014 will work and Sketchup 2015 won’t.
- Not all systems are affected. Intel HD 4000 graphics seems to be more susceptible
Here's the screen shot of my system's Graphics setup
A customer of mine is having the same problem with his new i3-based laptop.
Intel driver version 126.96.36.19971 (installer version 15.46.05.4771) dated 2017-08-13 which is the latest at time of writing, straight from Intel’s support site.
OS : Win 10 Pro x64, version 1703, build 15063.0
GPU : Intel HD Graphics 620 (integrated on i3-7100U)
GPU driver : version 188.8.131.5271
SketchUp : 17.2.2555 (x64)
This issue is not new and seems to be specific to Intel GPU drivers. Has Intel investigated this?
I am sorry to hear you are still having OpenGL* issues.
It looks like there is some type of compatibility issues between SketchUp and our graphics controllers. The following link will provide more information about it https://help.sketchup.com/pl/article/36208
I recommend running the “SketchUp 2017 Checkup application” that is on that link so the utility can let you know if the application will run or not with the hardware you have in your computer.
We also recommend contacting SketchUp in order to check with them if there is any workaround available for it. This link will give you their contact information https://help.sketchup.com/en/contact
