Is there any word out on Apples latest operating system and how it works with AC19?

I'm still having MAJOR issues w/ 7007 in OSX El Capitan.

3D textures and settings disappear when the 3D window is closed and then reopened again. (ex. look at something in 3D. Drop back out to floor plan. Jump back into 3D and boom a majority of surfaces have disappeared)

While it can be reset temporarily by swapping between internal engine and Open GL it also causes intermittent crashes. I've dried a completely clean install of AC 18 and I still get the issue regardless of file (I've tried blank templates, current projects, even those done by others).

Can anyone else confirm? I can test on our other office machines but I'm reluctant to upgrade those if they're going to have the same issue.

Update -
I've been able to track the behavior to the closure of the 3D window. Leaving the 3D window open in the background seems to work as a workaround for now.

Dear flamingjawa,

Thanks for pointing us to this issue.
The likelihood of the problem being fixed in AC18 is not very high, since it seems like the issue is only present in ARCHICAD 18, ARCHICAD 19 is not affected. The best known workaround yet, is what you suggested (Changing to Internal Engine and Back).

We have had two new iMac's delivered lately with El Capitan installed on them.
With the updates to AC18 now, it generally seems to work, but there is one thing that we are finding frustrating.
The tracker and coordinate input box does not pop up when we start moving items.
We also can not use the tab selection option to select different items in the same place as the tracker does not show up to tell us what we are possibly selecting.

Works OK in version 19 but not 18 which all of our projects are on.
Cheers,
Karl Barker.

I just updated the OS, and I too have the problem with the Tracker not showing up when using Tab to select different elements in the same place.

has anyone upgraded to this version; will ArchiCAD 18 & 19 run on it, what about all the other programs ?....

AC19 has been running on El Capitan here for the last month, with no problems now unresolved. Having made a clean install of OSX 10.11, some of my ancillary software had issues that required patches (now updated by the publishers). Only thing to check, if memory serves, is the type of 'dongle' you are using: We transitioned to a software dongle and all is well....

The tracker problem is caused by the same bug that was causing the Info Tag problem. If the cursor is moved a bit, the tracker reappears. This problem has already been fixed in build 7516, but the issuance of next ARCHICAD 18 update is currently indeterminate.

It would be good to get that hotfix out rather quickly as it is impossible to find the pallet to remove a boolean operation through the trackers.
We have to resort to selecting in plan and globally removing.
