Hi, totally new to using Openstudio. I'm trying to create geometry in the sketchup plug-in by: Opening sketchup (I have the opentudio extension installed and working) > import my openstudio model > drawing the floorplan with the rectangle tool and pencil tool > select it all > create space from diagram.

This was working fine. I was deleting the model and restarting to try a few variations of floorplans, then OpenStudio suddenly disappeared from SketchUp. I uninstalled and re-installed it, but now when I repeat the above process, the "create space from diagram" isn't responding at all. Nothing happens beyond selecting the floorplan shapes.

I've tried importing a different model and it's doing the same thing, so it seems to be the tool. I un-installed the openstudo plug-in and reinstalled it. Tried restarting SketchUp, and restarting my laptop All the other tools are responding normally. I'm on a mac, so I switched computers and tried through windows and it did the same thing, no response. Any ideas?

This appears to be a bug in v1.0.1 version of the plug-in released through the SketchUp Extension Warehouse. Is that the version you are using? I believe that this bug is fixed in the v1.1.0-pre1 release. It is a pre-release so not available through the Extension Warehouse yet. You would have to uninstall your current version of the OpenStudio SketchUp Plug-in, download the rbz file from the GitHub release page, and install the plug-in using the rbz file.
