    hi can anyone tell me how to get my oversized bed back to normal? i accidentally made it so big until i can't even select it and resize it back smaller. I was trying to rotate it but it ended up getting enlarged.

    I can make objects bigger with cmd+] but can't make them smaller with cmd+[ ... can you make something smaller than it's original size???

    I used Shift + ] and it works. I think that's the combination anyways.

    What about a French Canadian keyboard? It doesn't work for me :(.

    Hi everyone! I am trying to resize objects on The Sims 4 and I cannot figure out how. I have a Mac and an Apple Magic Keyboard - French Canadian. I tried enabling cheats and pressing shift ] and that doesn't work. Instead, it just moves the object up. Anyone know how to resize items with this kind of keyboard?
  • CauIiflowerCauIiflower Posts: 86 Member
    @Jojodoug we have the same problem haha.
  • JojodougJojodoug Posts: 5 New Member
    @Cauliflower Yes, it looks like we do. I am glad I am not the only one. Hopefully someone will be able to help us :smile:
  • CauIiflowerCauIiflower Posts: 86 Member
    @Jojodoug I contacted EA on fb 2 times about this problem. The first time they answered that it was the same as other keyboards (which is a lie) and the second time well...They never answered me back. :(
  • JojodougJojodoug Posts: 5 New Member
    Really? Sounds like they don't even know themselves because it is not the same as other keyboards at all! What did you say to them in your second message about it?
  • CauIiflowerCauIiflower Posts: 86 Member
    I can't find the second message since I tagged them on fb (they usually answer when u tag). It was something like ''It is not working and I am still waiting for an answer"

    I forgot to tag you @Cauliflower
  • JojodougJojodoug Posts: 5 New Member
    @Cauliflower Aw, man... That is really too bad. Hopefully they are trying to figure it out. I am hoping someone else has figured it out, though. I have some building ideas I want to do with the resizing feature.

    Have you tried switching to the US keyboard on your Mac? I'm guessing that your keyboard looks similar to the US one. It's under Settings.

    Don't know if it is still relevant but I use the [ and ] but after typing testingcheats I have to select another item, place that, and then choose the item I want to enlarge and press [ by itself. Also objects can't get any smaller than they come originally I believe
  • CauIiflowerCauIiflower Posts: 86 Member
    @Tremayne4260 French Canadian keyboard is similar to ISO not US!
  • Tremayne4260Tremayne4260 Posts: 3,000 Member
    My bad. :o However, do try to switch to the US keyboard configuration and then switching back to your normal settings. This should reset the keyboard settings.

    hey, So I made an object so big that i can only see the object in manage worlds. How do I get rid of it because my Sim can't get down to care for their daughter.
  • Tremayne4260Tremayne4260 Posts: 3,000 Member
    Try deleting it. click on the object in Buy/Build and then click on the Delete key. I'm not sure which one works in Sims 4.

    But can anyone answers how to rescale objects with a french Canadian keyboard ? Problem is we don't have the [ key (it's the same key as 9 and 0) so the cheat doesn't work... anyone know how we can do it without having to change the setting of our keyboards ? (because it gets very confusing to use afterwards)

    Hi! I know I’m really late in this discussion but does someone know how to make objects smaller with nordic keyboard (I have å, ä and ö) so I can make them bigger with å but please tell how to make them smaller! And I don’t mean the ctrl z because thats just the undo key. I have been searching this in the internet for 3 hours and tried every single one of my keys in Sims but nothing is working :(

    How about adding the UK or USA keyboard in System Preferences?
