Inconsistent positioning of drawn objects v track

In order to determine the minimum track separation for my layout, I have drawn a rectangle that is 40mm high x 50mm wide (40mm being the width across the cylinders of my widest loco, a Tri-ang Albert Hall 1960s vintage). I'd intended placing this over some horizontally-placed track (Peco Code 100) t...

Auto-joining tracks with multiples of a standard track

When joining to widely distanced tracks, you're only offered the choice of "Generic Flextrack" if the gap is longer than (say) Peco Code 100 Flextrack (914mm). It'd be handy for determining amount of track lengths to buy if the joining length of track could instead be composed of multiples of standa...

Join Track Dialog Annoyance

When you use Ctrl-F to join sections of track, the ribbon that pop-in at the top of the screen with the help text saying "Click to choose the second joint / Option Click to connect to with the track last used", which then changes to the choice of track and Cancel/Apply buttons, causes the whole layo...

Drawing lines with the shape tool

Is there any way to compel a line shape to a horizontal or vertical orientation when resizing it via one of its end control points? I'm used to applications that do so when the shift key is held down when dragging a control point, but here that seems to cause the control point to snap to the nearest...

Re: Just upgraded from v4 - some questions about v6

Hi Jan,

I'll send you the layout plan so you can see what I mean.

For other forum users, here's a screenshot showing the two curves created, depending on which anchor point you start at.

Just upgraded from v4 - some questions about v6

Hi, How can I move the track element palette in RMPro v6 so that it runs along the bottom of the screen, rather than being vertical in the left hand window? It uses up loads of my screen real estate (16x9 laptop) and gets in the way of seeing the actual layout plan. And although the cursor changes t...
