looking for assistance with an issue in the MATERIALS TAB, I accidentally created downloading product

Recommended Posts

In my plan-project the Materials Selector is now Super slow after an updated product + Materials download.  Have CA 2014. Work progress is stymied after downloading current product to the library. Screen displayed "successful 84,000 ++ products" too much!? Now Materials selector spins & spins takes several minutes to load.  Meanwhile when the materials selector does finally display (like 7 minutes later!) none of the new materials are showing up in the library, i can live with that if i have to but now I can't change any surfaces in my project w/o waiting forever.  Do i delete the recent downloads? move them? Assistance or suggestions please?

What is the "materials selector"?

What did you update? What did you download?

No such thing. You either have a Home Designer product -- Suite, Pro etc, or a Chief Architect Product -- Premier or Interiors.

 

The Home Designer products use a year, like 2014 as their version.

Did you update the Library? After a download, you must then update the Library.

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

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) 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.

yes, thanks = Home Designer 2014. 

Downloaded the latest products & materials available in the program.  Several of them. Definitely didnt update the library after the download.Not sure even how to do that?

;-/

the Materials selector is the tab for altering the finish or texture in the plan.... changing the flooring or paint, wood finish, etc.
