I wonder if anyone has faced the same problem: Archicad 21 crashes at times when I open the "Object" tool from the sidebar. So far this hasn't happened every time and I've been able to continue working. Sometimes I can open the Object tool and go on modifying the object before the crash happens. This is always in 2D mode. The problem started after I tested downloading a BIM object via the Object tool. I deleted the "bad object" from the library and am already using another project, but the problem still seems to appear.

So has anyone experienced the same and found a solution? I understand this might also be due to my oldish laptop or latest Apple update... I'm using MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid-2015) with 2,2 GHz Inter Core i7 Processor. The graphic card is Inter Iris Pro 1536 Mt. I've updated to Mojave. My Archicad version is 21, build 7000 EDU.

Big thanks for any suggestions! Ps. I've already tried repairing the file. -Mari
