Dialog windows are wider than my screen and can't be resized Archicad 25 MacOS Monterey iMac 24 M1


The save, Open, Place and most other dialog boxes are about 3 times as wide as my screen and can't be resized small, but can be, ridiculously made wider.

This must be a bug. There appears to have been a similar problem AC19 with Windows 10

Please help

It seems to be a known issue with Monterey.



One of the forum moderators.
Versions 6.5 to 27
Dell XPS- i7-6700 @ 3.4Ghz, 16GB ram, GeForce GTX 960 (2GB), Windows 10
Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11


After upgrading to Monterey OS we discovered an issue with the Open and Save dialogs where the dialog width grows until it's wider than the screen. Until Graphisoft releases an update to fix this problem you can solve the issue with two Terminal commands as we describe in a Blog article we posted at this link >>
