I do not have a Mac either but I cannot imagine that that procedure would be radically different on a Mac (the procedures would be identical, Macs and PC's both have dialog boxes and input boxes). You change the x and y values of the pattern and texture to resize the appearance of a material on 3D faces. No other method is possible.

The knowledge base explains using right clicks. So no matter what combinations I try I can't select to copy and even to get its parameters.

None of the Home Designer articles are Mac vs PC.  The only difference I personally have observed is that Preferences is under the Edit menu on the PC, and under the program menu's name on the Mac, and usually with that one I've seen them actually put both instructions in the same article itself.

So, this article should work just fine for learning how to modify a material, such as tile, for it's size as well as rotate it, if needed.

UPDATE: Ahhh, I think I see you're confusion with your statement:

Check out this article on "How to Right Click on a Mac" since you're unfamiliar with the process.

on the Mac a right click is the same as a left click while you hold the Control Key (CTRL) I believe.

Yes thank you I'm aware of how to right click on a Mac. So this question will need to be answered by a Mac user. Thank you for trying.

use ' Adjust material definition ' tool and under ' Texture " play with the X and Y values  ( scale ) until you are happy with the look.
