  1. A simple way of positioning tracks separated by a straight

    I'm often trying to position a couple of points/turnouts, so that one junction will line up exactly with the other. In other words, when you insert flex track between those junctions, the track will be straight.

    You could generalise this to arbitrary tracks, not just points/turnouts.

  2. Companion app for iPad

    I know there's an existing thread for a fully functional iPad version, but in lieu of that, I was wondering if there's any possibility of a sort of paired down companion app for iPad. A nice little viewer application that allows you to zoom in and out and show/hide layers would be really handy when out in the garage working. I'd happily throw down $20 or so for something like that, especially if it allowed me to support creation of a fully fledged version down the road.

  3. Use Layers for Alternatives (Detach Layers)

    I'm in the process of updating a layout to the new version of the software. In that process, I've decided to design two different alternatives for some optional add-ons to the layout. However, those alternatives are mutually exclusive and require replacing a couple of track segments in order to provide the correct interface to the main layout.

    It would be nice if I could hide the layer for Option 1 and then connect tracks to the now (apparently) disconnected tracks on other layers in the Option 2 layer.

    Essentially, it would be nice if there was a way to tell…

  4. Tabbing between entry fields and layout area

    When I edit measurements or position values for a feature or a layout, and press Enter, the marker stays in the value field. If I then want to move the object via the arrow keys, I first have to take the mouse and click on the object before it can be moved. I would prefer that the marker should leave the value fields, so the object can be worked on directly as I press Enter.

  5. Ability to skip blank pages when printing.

    When printing full size, it would be nice if blank pages (pages defined maybe as no track in them and no shapes could be skipped. Currently you have to export to PDF and then delete the blank pages before printing.
