The Archicad program acts like an inactive window


I was using the Buiding Materials window in Archicad 26, when the program suddenly stopped responding to any inputs. It isn't stuck, like you might expect when a program stops responding, but it instead acts like the Archicad window is inactive, and it won't become active when I click on it. it still reacts when I hover over a button (it highlights the button in blue to indicate which function I'm about to use like it normally does), but nothing actually happens when I click. As far as I know, the only way to get around this is to restart the program after shutting it down using the task manager.


Does anyone know what caused this? And preferably also how to fix it?


EDIT: It happened again, it seems to have something to do with the material properties catalog. It doesn't happen every time I open it, but it has happened twice now in a few hours

EDIT 2: It's not the catalog, it's the Building Materials window in general.
