create new trays. Though I choose to maintain the tray seen

types you’ve saved with the older model.
As for extensions and plugins, the most suitable choice is to put in
contemporary copies of those you utilize both through the Extension
Warehouse which you’ll entry by way of the SketchUp Window menu
or through the Sketchucation ExtensionStore.

variations may trigger you issues.
