Q: When I input my code, it says that the code is not valid. What should I do?
A: You are probably still using an old version of Artisan. Please uninstall Artisan and then update to the latest version here. Make sure you restart SketchUp after updating.
Q: I tried to update Artisan using the SketchUp Extension Manager and it said ‘Failed to update Artisan. Unable to read extension archive.’ What should I do?
A: If your Artisan license is from the Extension Warehouse, make sure you are signed into SketchUp using the same Extension Warehouse account that you used to purchase. If your Artisan license is from MindSight Studios Inc., you can not use the Extension Manager to install updates. You must download and install updates manually from here.
