    > 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 :(

    I have the same problem! I also have Å, Ä and Ö on my keyboard, Literally tried everything. Looked here, at the swedish forum, on google and no one seems to have the same issue. The most logical thing I guess is to tap P or ´. Is this something the sims team didn't care about or care to post about. If someone know how to size objects on nordic keyboards please tell me. Thanks!

    You'll have to add either the US or UK keyboard configuration to your system preferences.

  • On the Norwegian keyboard, you can size up by using the "å"-key. But I have neither found a way to size down.
    You'll have to add either the US or UK keyboard configuration to your system preferences.

    Do as @Tremayne4260 said, that worked for me! Although it is an annoying solution, it seems to be the only one available at this time.

    I don't really know about Mac, since I play with PC, but with nordic keyboard the key for making items smaller is ´ (between ? and Backspace keys) .

    Would that work for you too?

    Well, I have tried all of the buttons on the keyboard around Å (which makes things bigger) and with alt, shift and cmd on, still didn't work. I guess that if I want to make objects smaller I need to change the keyboard system like @tremayne4260 said. Thanks for replies! :)

    > 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

    ok, but do you know how to make objects bigger with a QWERTZ keyboard? :/ im kinda confused

    > Assuming you haven't enable cheats, you have to enable the cheats first. :) Press Ctrl + Shift + C and type "testingcheats true" then enter. :)
    > Then you just hold an object in build mode and press Ctrl+[ to make it smaller or Ctrl+] to make it bigger. :)

    Ok but, when i do this, the objects dont get bigger, they just go higher! Do you have a solution?

    Just google CC for Sims 4. Tumblr is a great place to look too. For instructions on installing it on a Mac read this guide by itsaprilXD.

    Holding down CTRL and pressing 9 and 0 make objects move up and down. Holding CTRL and [ and ] make objects bigger and smaller. If this doesn't work for you then change you try changing your keyboard layout to USA or UK. You can do this in System Preferences > Keyboard

    I don't know if this was solved in the end or if the solution is in another thread but i have a PC and for me it enlarges objects with ctrl + ? (or ') and makes them small with ctrl + ^ (or ì).. i have an italian keyboard.. but in anycase it's ctrl + the two keys after the numbers

    As was stated in the 2nd post of this thread, you may have to change your keyboard settings to US/UK.

    Hi ! So I am playing on a macbook pro retina with an AZERTY (french) keyboard, I am able to make objects smaller with command + ), however when I press command + ( to make them bigger it doesn't do anything, just zoom in sometimes. Does anyone else have this problem ? Is there a way to fix it ?
  • Tremayne4260Tremayne4260 Posts: 2,998 Member
    You will probably have to change the setting of your keyboard to US/UK. Sorry. :(

    I also have this problem. I have a Danish keyboard. I've tried every combination and I can only seem to make objects bigger with the å button, but not smaller. I've tried everything. Also changing my keyboard to US-pc, but when I go into the game it changes back to Danish and doesn't work. What do I do?
  • EmmaBTS02EmmaBTS02 Posts: 3 New Member
    And now I can't move things up and down anymore which I could do smoothly before, now it just doesn't work. Help
