Anyone know how to change label text size? I am working on a large building and the layout scaling is 1/32". The labels are too small and cant be read. I cant find options for text size all the label panel, all it has that box that says use default, that I can check and uncheck. But don't know where to edit this default size or the individual label text size.
I am working on a 90k square foot remodeling project for Veterans' and up until this point I have had zero issues or lag from my hardware or the Chief Software.
I recently imported over 375 3rd party 3D objects in order to accommodated the design requirements of the project. A majority of the objects are 2017 Sketchup (.skp) files from 3D Warehouse. Some of the objects can get very complex--such as entire Coffee shops, large 3d wall panels, large furniture groupings, and complex medical equipment. On some of the more complex and larger ones it took about 20-30 minutes to get the object to load into Chief.
My file size is currently just over 3 GB and growing --- which is something my system can handle. As of right now it feels like I am using a POS computer, and I am most definitely not ( (see specs below). Just about every operation (in Chief) is very slow and bogged down--I can still use the rest of my computer fine.
Have I overloaded the Chief Library / Software? If so, should I purge all unused objects until they are needed in order to improve performance? Is there something else that I can do?
I truly appreciate your help.

I'm in a little bit of a Tim-crunch so A minute amount of impatiens may translate into this post so my apologies in advance and welcome your suggestions to solve this issue.....
....but is anyone else having these types of issues? ( see video of me moving a detail in the 2-D environment with no other windows open, layouts, details, etc) I window select a group of lines, objects and level-licked grouped objects, in fact, the entire detail, and needed to drag it over just 4 inches and my computer hangs in thinking mode for "54 seconds"?? Why..... Why would this happen??? Is there a program preset I'm missing, a setup not checked, or something not enabled, even a mouse setting either in-program or via windows system setups?? Do I need to start a new "STARTER PLAN" file? Do drawing files keep getting larger even when you delete from your drawing files, particularly my starter plan??

Any and all help or suggestions are welcome.... I am wanting to be humble and not mad at my machine or program... I just need to somehow find a solution to my production bottleneck. Thank you ever so much for your help in advance!!
I just went to do a quick ray-trace on a project I am finalizing, and got a bit of a shock at how one object rendered. The object was imported from Sketch-Up, and looked just fine in the camera view. But after the rendering developed - surprise!
Any way to fix this? Why did this happen?
