SketchUp Openstudio Ruby Console ERROR

Greetings. I frequently stumble upon the following error while drawing subsurfaces. The subsurfaces usually do not register as doors or windows if the error appears. I am forced to restart SketchUp in order to complete one subsurface, but the error appears again in the next subsurface I try to draw.

The error repeats itself a couple of times more than the ones that are captured in the picture. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The error message you are seeing, "Invalid active path transform", indicates that you may be trying to change geometry in another group. Are you double clicking into the SketchUp group for your space and modifying geometry that way?

Yes I double click in the openstudio space that I want. One issue that I have is that I need to draw a door in a wall that seperates a room from a corridor, and each of them has its own openstudio space.

I repeteadly have the error below when I load a save and some doors that I have draw do not show up:

"Error: Sub Surface 152 This sub surface's base surface 'Surface 29' has less than 3 points, it cannot be drawn."

The same doors that present this error load correctly on previous saves before I draw additional doors. Finally I have the initial error when I use the Hide command.
