Problem with turning a material into an emiter

Trying to turn a material into an emiter, and whenever I check the emiter box, it doesn't show up as checked next time I clock on it. What am I missing?

The settings for Materials are stored inside the SketchUp Material.

Is the Material being destroyed and a new one re-applied to the face?

Open the Ruby console when editing the Emitter settings and check for errors.

I've run into the same problem.

I've been trying to make an image material into an emitter, but it won't emit.
Alternate idea was to make the image 90% opaque and put a white colored emitter behind it.

In both cases, whenever I go back to the materials editor for either material, "emitter" is unchecked.

I opened the ruby console and there are no messages.

I am using the demo in Sketchup 2016
