How to move & connect sections of track to other sections?

Post by Schienenbus » Wed 15. Jun 2016, 07:39

The old software had a convenient function which moved a whole section of connected tracks to connect to another section. I cannot find this function in Pro - and help doesn't mention it? Is it still there? It is REALLY useful...

You can simply drag the selected track section like you would a single track.
The unconnected dragged tracks will snap and connect to tracks in the layout thus connecting the entire track section.

Also an entire track section can be quickly selected by triple-clicking any track of the section.
Optionally you can use Shift-Click to select the first and last track of a section or use the 'Connected tracks..' item from the Select menu.

Hope this helps,

Yes, that helps enormously and is much better than in the old version.
Thank you.
