    Chimney Design

    What part has you stumped? If you have a 2nd floor, make a room there with a short ceiling. Create another room inside that one with no roof and a tall ceiling.

    Camera View issues

    Slowdowns are sometimes a result of a symbol, or several symbols. The symbols available within the program are optimized, but ones sourced elsewhere may not be. Unfortunately, Home Designer does not have the tools to identify the problem. Does it just "get better", or does it go back to normal? Your computer may also make a difference. If it meets but does not exceed the minimum requirements, you may see a slowdown.

    You will need to direct questions like this to the people at Chief Architect.

    Custom Ceiling Planes

    You can help us by using a Vector View camera as it shows edge lines making things like ceiling planes easier to see.

    WEIRD WALL

    Switch to Vector View and take a couple more screen captures. Vector View almost always works best for images to be posted here -- makes it much easier to see problems like this.
  15. One of my early frustrations with the software was having to tap the spacebar to exit from whatever mode I was in. So much can be done with the mouse only. I upgraded to a mouse with programmable buttons and set one to send a spacebar keystroke. Problem solved.

    No idea what you want to do. A couple of images might help.

    Making sizable 3D models

    Not that I know of. When I create or import a symbol using Chief Premier, I can set some sizing options, but they are limited, Home Designer does not have that ability. Symbols stretch uniformly.

    Simple cottage, strage roof

    Since you have Pro, and this is such a simple roof, use manual roof planes. You can auto build, but manual is really easy.

    Create Shadow Moldings

    Not in Home Designer. You could use a Custom Backsplash set to Cut Finish Layers, but you would need to place one for each wall, and the corners won't look correct. Use a Wall Covering to simulate a base with a different material
