What does "Unsigned" in SketchUp Extension Manager mean
With the release of SketchUp Pro 2017/ 2018/ 2019, Trimble introduced a Signed and Unsigned "rule" that is displayed under the author in the Extension Manager. This is an arbitrary rule that has nothing to do with how SU Podium, Podium Walker, Pro Walker GPU or any other Cadalog, Inc. plug-in functions in SketchUp. Further, Cadalog, Inc. extensions and plug-ins have been in use since SketchUp 7 and have absolutely no security risks.
Extensions manager signed/ unsigned/ Invalid Signature have no effect on the features and functions of SU Podium or ProWalker. But there are times when Trimble's own Extensions Signing portal is broken and sometimes the Signed Extension can not be obtained.
For example, we were able to "sign" the Windows version of SketchUp V2.5.904 for SketchUp 2019 but for reasons unknown, we could not for the Mac version. In the case of ProWalker GPU, the ProWalker GPU program is to large in file size for the Extension signing portal. We are working with Trimble on these issues.
Rest assured that being unsigned has nothing do with how SU Podium is integrated with SketchUp. Being unsigned will not create bug splats or interfere with your work flow.
