Issue Details

I'm using LabVIEW on Mac OS X 10.13 or higher, and any time I try to resize an array on the front panel or block diagram, the array snaps back to the original size. How do I fix this?

Solution

This is a known bug in the interaction between the way newer LabVIEW versions dynamically resize objects and Mac OS X 10.13 and higher. To fix this issue, you can disable the dynamic resizing by adding the INI token LiveGrow=false to the LabVIEW preferences file. This will let you resize arrays, although the appearance of the objects as you resize them may be jittery.
