Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House
Puybaret, I just downloaded the most recent version of the program, and when I went to increase the max memory as you had mentioned previously the part that I would be able to do so doesn't seem to be a part of Info.plist any longer.

With the free version under Mac OS X, click on the application icon of Sweet Home 3D while maintaining the ctrl key pressed to display its contextual menu, choose Show Package Contents item, open the Contents folder, edit the Info.plist file by dragging its icon on TextEdit application and update the maximum memory in the text <string>-Xmx1024m</string>, writing for example <string>-Xmx2g</string> for 2 GB instead of 1024 MB. Finally, save the file and relaunch Sweet Home 3D. If Info.plist is protected, you may run a command like sudo nano /Applications/Sweet\ Home\ 3D.app/Contents/Info.plist in a Terminal window to edit it (this command requires to enter the password of the administrator of the Mac).


I also tried opening a Terminal window as mentioned but once I put in sudo nano /Applications/Sweet\ Home\ 3D.app/Contents/Info.plist and hit enter it wouldn't let me enter my password. I've copied/pasted what my Info.plist file says, below.

Am I missing something? The only reason I'm writing this inside of one of my posts is because this is the post in which I was originally informed of how to increase my memory so that I can take rendered pictures. I tried to do so after downloading the newer version, and the program won't let me.
