Just yesterday, my SketchUp program decided that my trial of the SketchUp 8 Pro version had expired and I would be required to register and buy the Pro version if I were to continue using SketchUp.
However, I have never opted to try the Pro version and have been content to use SketchUp 7, never updating to version 8. I have neither any desire nor intent of using the Pro version and feel like I’ve been “slammed”, similar to the feeling of being “slammed” by a mobile phone salesman.
Anyone know what is going on? Is there any way to get back to regular SketchUp as any attempt to download the current free version results in similar requirements that I register for and purchase the Pro version?
If I needed the Pro version, I’d have no qualms about purchasing, but I don’t. One of the primary reasons for even trying SketchUp in the first place was that it was supposed to be a great free product. I wouldn’t have wasted my time buying various learning tools/programs (approximately $100) and learning to use SketchUp if I’d know it was going to turn out to be this kind of scam.
Thanks for any insight anyone can offer.
