At Rill Architects we run ArchiCAD on macOS. If you work at Rill, this is your stuff. If you don't, but you work in ArchiCAD, you may find something interesting. Anybody else, I don't know.

Here's a summary of the single key commands in Archicad. I didn't know some of them either. G & C will save you a lot of mouse milage.
