This is great news! I was just looking into Sketch Up and it's not what I'm looking for.
Will WildTools work in 64bit?
I am so ready for this version.

Thank You!

Certainly we will have WildTools moved to 64 bit as well.

Hopefully we won't go 64 bit when all the world will be 128 -and I will be 96 years old. :D

I agree! One other thing that concerns me is that most software is moving to yearly subscriptions. As one approaches retirement, this concerns me because I won't have the need for high powered software, but would like continued access to my old files. I am using a 2008 version of MS Office. I was using a 2019 version of SketchUp, but think it might have just become disabled. I'm using a 1990's version of FrameMac (on an old OS8 iMac). Etc. Etc.

I my be a minority here, but from a business standpoint PC should be subscription based.
I have no problem supporting PC and insuring it's future development.

Think of how little we've spent on PC over the years.

Echoing the hope for a continued perpetual license model. Do not appreciate having work product held hostage in lieu of a yearly tithe. Have historically found replacements for those applications which have gone subscription based. As much as I have gained from being a loyal user and upgrader since the days of PowerDraw, PowerCADD will become another one of those casualties. The fact that we have had as long as we have to find a replacement makes the prospect less painful if no more palatable.

My preference is also for a perpetual licence. As someone not far from retirement who will likely use PC less regularly, the concept of paying a monthly fee I also find less palatable.

I still run that sometimes on an old Titanium PowerBook in OS9. Not so much now though.
