  1. Change text size, working 3d view, working export as image, working print, print track layout

    Would love if these features worked. Software was priced at the point to be bug free.

    Export as image crashed my mac book pro

    Print is blank

    3d worked, now is zoomed out to 0 and wont move or zoom in enough
    When it worked it did not show shapes and was fairly poor compared to Windows software options.

    Would love an option to print all the track pieces so I can actually use this design irl

  2. Rotating handles on Track to rotate.

    I am a Graphic Designer and I am so use to a rotation tool and not to punch in numbers. Can you make it where we can have handles on the track and group of track to rotate and the option of degrees of increments?

  3. 3D structures

    I have used other apps which offer rail cars, buildings in 3d views. It would go a long ways in my planning to have something other than boxes on my plan.

    Thanks for your feedback on early macOS beta versions!

    We will certainly make sure RailModeller Pro and RailModeller Express will work with the public release of the upcoming macOS High Sierra once it becomes officially available.

  5. Export of the layout in alpha format

    Export the entire layout in alphanumeric form so that it can be read back by a different program for further processing. Probably xml would be the best format for that.

  6. [alt] key to quick change between rotating and moving the 3D view

    When in 3D view, hold down the [alt] key (and drag the mouse) to quickly use the opposite function of the one currently selected. So when in "move mode" hold down [alt] to quickly rotate, and vice versa.

  7. default to using 12 unit grid when using imperial units.

    Every time I start a new layout (I'm using inches) I need to adjust the grid settings to 12 unit grid… the default gives 10 unit grid (which is awesome for metric, but certainly a pain for people using inches and feet)

  12. Move selected elements to another level at once

    By now one need to group the selected elements, move it to another level and ungroup these elements. I would rather prefer not to group / ungroup selected elements.

  13. Copy & Paste tracks to *where the cursor is* rather than *where the copied tracks were*

    Right now, copy & paste of a track or selection makes an immediate copy of the track right next to the original track on the currently selected layer.

    I rarely want the copies where the original was, I want them close to my mouse cursor or center of the view.

  14. On program start

    When program start, do not open an empty layout. This is only for closing it again, otherwise open resent layout.

  16. Dropdown menu for the zoom function

    While planning a Peco track layout i often zoom in and out from 100% to 500% to place the tracks. Every time i need to type 100% or 500%. It would be handy if i clicked on the percentage a dropdown menu appeared with the last used percentages

  18. Image export to Photoshop .psd to include separate layers

    When exporting a track plan all its layers are 'collapsed'.
    I suggest keeping them as separate layers for Photoshop files so we can edit individual (image) layers in PS or Acorn or Pixelmator or....

  19. Poligon dimesions

    Railmodeller calculates the size of the polygons as a projection orthogonal to axes X and Y.
    Consequently a rotation of the polygon leads to a variation of the dimensions.
    It would be useful to have instead the size of the sides of the 'minimum area rectangle' circumscribing the polygon.
    In case of laboriousness of real-time calculation, it would be possible to obtain this result at least on the specific button pressures?

  20. Non-track items that I could add to the stock

    I would like to be able to add track-related items like turnout controls, turnout and 3-extension cords etc. Just allow me to add custom items to the stock db.
