macOS 13 Ventura

Selen Isleyen

Apple released the new macOS 13 Ventura on 24th October 2022.

Archicad is compatible with some known issues detailed below. There are no problems regarding BIMx, and existing BIMcloud setups; on the other hand newly installed BIMcloud needs manual troubleshooting after installation. Please read the "Known issues" chapter below for more information about this and the Archicad glitches.

Known issues


Installer removes dock icons while installing/uninstalling Archicad 25 and earlier

Affected version(s): Archicad 25 and earlier | ID: DEF-9679


Archicad installer/uninstaller removes the first dock icons after the Finder (Given the Finder is the most left one). The issue happens only in Archicad 25 and earlier versions, but not in Archicad 26.


The icons need to be manually docked again.
Line types can not be changed with the cursor

Affected version(s): All Archicad version(s) | ID: DEF-11012


In Archicad 26 and earlier versions, the line types can no longer be changed with the mouse (the cursor). This affects existing projects as well as new projects on window/dialog where the line type can be set, walls, slabs, fills, and so on.
We are planning to fix this in upcoming updates to Archicad 25 and Archicad 26.




When the line type pop-up dialog appears, use the Arrow Key to change the line types and not the mouse.

 Input issue when moving an element

Affected version(s): All Archicad version(s) | ID: DEF-11093


Input issue when moving an element with a manually given distance in the Tracker: the first number gets highlighted and overwritten by the second typed character.
We are planning to fix this issue in upcoming updates to Archicad 25 and Archicad 26.



Press the Tab or arrow key before typing the numbers manually.


 Fresh new BIMcloud setup may not work after installation if its data folders are stored in a custom location.

Affected version(s): Fresh new BIMcloud setup 


The issue occurs on fresh new installations if any of the BIMcloud folders (e.g. Projects) are configured to be stored on a custom location. On macOS 13 Ventura, the BIMcloud installer cannot add BIMcloud to the Full Disk Access settings, so BIMcloud does not get the necessary permissions to access the customized folders. If this happens, BIMcloud cannot be started until the Full Disk Access is set properly.

This issue does NOT affect existing BIMcloud installations. If BIMcloud was installed before upgrading to Ventura, there are no issues.


Full Disc Access needs to be set up manually after the BIMcloud installation process:

1. Start the System Settings (used to be System Preferences),
2. Select Security & Privacy then Full Disk Access,


3. Click on the + icon to add new components


4. In the new dialog, browse for the following components and add them one by one:

Components required for operation:

BIMcloud Manager:


/Applications/Graphisoft/BIMcloud/Manager-<Install Date>/TeamworkPortalServerManager

BIMcloud Server:


/Applications/Graphisoft/BIMcloud/Server-<Install Date>/TeamworkApplicationServerMonitor


There is no known issues in BIMx Desktop viewer from the version 4025.

Hi @Selen Isleyen,

looks like there is an issue with AC26 INT 4019 on Ventura - with the Line/Arc/Polyline/Spline Tools - when defining a line type, You have to move the cursor to the far left of the screen to be able to select the type you wish (the selection does not follow the cursor).

Lee Hankins

You can actually select the line types, the cursor placement is just massively offset. If you move to the left hadn side of the dialogue box and move the cursor up and down the screen, the selection row of the line types moves up and down too. Using the arrow key is far easier though.


Hello, I just updated to Ventura and noticed an issue with AC 26. (4022 AUT) aswell as the latest Apple Silicon Tech Preview:

After Tool Selection (For example Wall, Slab, but also Line, Arc/Circle...) the first number input (to define length for example) is highlighted and then deleted by the second number input. (example: to get "10" I have to type "110"). This behavior started right after updating and is really annoying because it seems to occur quit randomly. Please let me know if this behavior can be changed in settings. 

(M1 Pro Macbook)


@a_shrtlr I'm having the same issue, also on M1 Ventura after upgrading. The problem is on AC 25 too.


It isn't consistent though. Occasionally, the distance value doesn't highlight itself.Screenshot.png


About the Line-Type selection dialog: you can toggle/scroll and select with the arrow keys (up and down) from the keyboard.
