Better handling a small track sections
When laying track, moving the smallest pieces is very much hit and miss.
Selecting such track is already complicated, leading to a zoom, and a careful mouse drag to select it.
If I try to move a very small item, I end up either:
- rotating it
- attaching a new piece of track to it mistakenly
At the moment, I workaround the issue by carefully selecting the track, deleting it, to then add it again in the desired spot.
It would be nice of the software could behave in a simple "point", "click" to select then "drag" to new location as with larger track elements.
I have looked at Marklin and Atlas libraries and the issue applies to all tracks sized under 30mm.
Thanks for the feedback -
Luckily this is already possible:
Holding down the Option key temporarily disables the append function.
This can often be handy to e.g. select very small tracks.
You can also permanently disable the append function in the application's preferences if it doesn't suit your personal working style.
In addition it can help to adjust the 'Magnetic Joint Area' in the app's preferences for what works best with the track systems you're using as there usually isn't a one-size-fits-all setting that is ideal for all users and gauges.
