VW 2016 with Mac OS High Sierra

Question

I updated to the most recent OS and when I go to add favorites thru the resource browser I have an issue with the finder window acting up.  Its like the window has a grey box over a majority of the area making id difficult to select files? Anyone ever seen this?  I can post pictures later as I dont have access at the moment.

 

Also worth noting I have restarted the machine and VW several times.  Also seems to playing some tricks on my workspace all the sudden.  The basic pallet goes black and I must reslect that workspace.

 

Maybe I need to reset preferences? I recall a procedure to do this.  Where can this be found?

I suggest you revert to Sierra from High Sierra. If you can't reinstall Sierra from a hard drive backup the process isn't simple. Apple have removed the Sierra installer from the Mac App Store.

Went thru the steps, and still having issues.  See attached video. SP6 vw2016. No custom workspace. Any thought? @JimW

If this is Vectorworks 2016 on Sierra, that may be the problem. 2016 won't be getting any further patches and was never officially made compatible with High Sierra. If you select one of the items and then simply press Enter even though you cant see the open/cancel buttons anymore, does it function?

I am able to usually select the file.  Other issues are with the pallets.  Mainly the basic pallet goes blank, and it only comes back after toggling the workspace on and off.  Looks like we may be forced into 2017 here.  Thanks for the heads up Jim.
