Can't set Grade on Atlas 6040 bumper track

Post by ErnestHouse » Tue 6. Oct 2015, 15:00

Using 5.0.11. Whenever I use the Atlas 21st Century track piece 6040 10" bumper, I can't set the grade. Get an error "Selection consists of multiple sections of track..."

Hi Ernest,

this is indeed a bug when setting grades for a track section including a bumper track. I've fixed the issue for the next update.

As a work around you could either deselect just the bumper track using Shift-Click, then set the grade for the section of tracks excluding the bumper track and finally re-appending the track by disconnecting and re-connecting it using the mouse.

You can optionally just select bumper track and create a graded section to the track by specifying a value for the grade in order to control how many tracks should be graded.

Yes. That's what I've been doing. Will catch the fix on the next version. Thanks.
