when i open a previously saved idf file and then start sketchup and browse the file using the Euclid toolbar the *.idf file is loaded in sketchup but some of construction features like walls, shading groups are missing or at the wrong place.

@zubairaw it looks like the images you tried to include in your post didn't convert correctly. Could you try again, or include a link to the images?

for a simple design I can recreate the design but for complex buildings, i usually don't close the application (no restarts for the laptop) till the project is complete. But i like to open a backup/ last saved file to correct a mistake. A sample of the problem is attached where one file with a design is saved and when its opened then all the geometery is mess.
