Using Archicad 21 on a Mac platform. For some reason, the program is dropping walls at random 50'(15+ meters). I don't know why this is happening.

Are you creating the walls in the 3D window? The origin/working plane may need to be moved. If in 2D, what are your settings for the base reference level / offset and/or home story? Screenshot of your wall settings dialog?

Creating the walls in 2D in the view map. Not sure how to add screen shot to this format. Reference plane is zero

Check that the Gravity button is turned off.
Or maybe you have a height value in the 'Z' coordinate box (although this would not be random as everything would end up -50').
