Model Units in cm – DC options in inches?

A few Flex users (including myself) encountered an issue where all of a sudden all the fields in the Dynamic Component Options Window appeared in Inches, even though their model units were set to cm.  It’s a bug with the Sketchup dynamic components plugin, and it happens only if you have unchecked ‘Display units format’ (Probably in order to get a cleaner display of dimensions).   The fix is to re-check it:

  1. Window / Model Info / Units
  2. Check ‘Display units format’
  3. Save the model
  4. Restart Sketchup

You’ve been using Flex Components and suddenly with the installation of Sketchup 2017 a new bug was introduced that affects all dynamic components in previous versions of Sketchup.  The following error may come up:

” ERROR: Callback function error: Object doesn’t support property or method ‘attachEvent’ @/dcbridge.js[601]. ”

Solution: Install the latest version of the Dynamic Components Extension.
