Hotlink Manager’s File Select dialog fails to select files opened by different macOS 10.13 High Sierra user

Projects show up greyed out in File Select dialog for “Place Hotlink…” if they are already opened by another user who uses macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

It is due to Apple’s significant changes on how smb works in the background.


To prevent this issue use Teamwork files as hotlink modules instead of Solo projects.

We plan to include a fix for this issue in the 8000 Update of ARCHICAD 20 and the 6000 Update of ARCHICAD 21.
