    *** I see you said Suite 2021 ***

     

     

    Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

     

    You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

     

    Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

     

    And, turn on signature display too.

    I have added furniture, lighting etc

     

    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.

    When I turn off furniture in preferences it gets better

     

    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.

    Are there any plans to add this as a feature in the HD products?

     

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

  7. 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.

    but is there a way to design such custom 3D objects to be more intelligently sizable?

     

    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.

    Is it possible to create a custom profile for moldings and is it possible to create a profile that sits within the drywall section.

     

    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
