I'm re-posting Gergely Kmethy's posts here as a 'sticky' to increase the likelihood that Mac users will see them:

A word of warning: Our developers have identified a bug in Snow Leopard that may cause crash in ArchiCAD. The unpredictable nature of this bug causes that the crashes are infrequent, random, and unrelated to any specific user action. If you have not yet upgraded to 10.6, we recommend to wait until this problem is addressed by Apple. See details in the updated wiki article:

Keith,

Glad to help. Personally, I'm going to wait a bit till Mac OS 10.6.3 comes out and then I might spend the big bucks. And I won't install AC13 till after that.

No problems here. Installed Snow Leopard directly over Leopard (which in turn had been installed directly over Tiger). Just make sure you have backed up first and run disk checks to make sure you don't have a faulty hard drive before you start. Repair permissions before and after too as a precaution.

Haven't been on the forum for awhile and was surprised to see people have had trouble with AC 13 and SL. The only glitch I ever encountered was with the user origin mark not displaying when moved occasionally, though the coordinate box read correctly. With the upgrade to 10.6.2 that problem seems to have been solved, so happy camper here.
