When selecting an option in ARCHICAD that opens a file browser dialog (e.g. Open, Save As, Place Drawing, etc.), you might notice 5-10 sec delays when trying to navigate. The beach ball cursor may not appear, only ARCHICAD will be unresponsive for a few seconds.



We have found that if you go to 'System Preferences App>Security & Privacy>Privacy', and Untick the ARCHICAD option in all the sub menus from the left, then the problem goes away. Please also make sure that you are on the latest update of ARCHICAD.


If the above solution doesn't work for you, please contact your local Support team, and tell them about your issue, referencing this article.
