  1. 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

  3. 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....

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  7. Ability to edit libraries

    I plan Gauge 1 layouts.
    I need radii of 3m or 10ft and parallel curves. I cannot find them in the existing libraries.

  9. Macros (common building blocks)

    Some track constructions and standard and repetitive. There is a best way to construct a 72 inch radius reverse loop, a crossover, or parallel track with clearance for long cars on curves. I am sure your users could name many more. You could save them time by adding these to your smart options.

  10. The Rotate tool be controllable to user-selected angles, instead of just 90 degrees.

    I have developed a rather complicated module of the Chicago & NorthWestern Chicago Passenger Terminal. I would like to rotate it 45 degrees to see if it is superior in the space I have to work in.

  12. Semaphore, bridge, tunnel, viaduct, railroad crossing, etc symbols library to allow planning on layout. Feature like "insert emoticons".

    What I am missing is symbols library containing set of various features of railroad technicalities which I would be able to choose and place along the track. Library like one with emoticons but containing various semaphores, signals, railroad crossing, bridges, tunnel portals, viaduct, etc.

  13. "Clean Up Layout" convert all "free form" flex tracks to "pure" straight or curved forms (if within tolerance).

    After using a lot of flex track I find that most (if not all) of them are near to being perfect curves or straights. It would be nice if these could be auto-converted to their perfect equivalents.

  14. Assign height to a layer, making it easier to make leveled layouts.

    When you've different levels in your layout, for example a shadow station at the bottom, followed by the standard layout, and on top of that some smaller local stations, you want to assign a standard height to each of the 3 layers, say 0, 12 and 20, or -12, 0 and 8. This will make it then also easier to make connections between the different layers with different heights, and doing the layout per layer is faster than assigning heights to individual or grouped parts.

  15. smart insert remember last used values…

    When using flex track for example I find myself having to select the same track code, curve radius & angles repeatedly again & again. It would be great if the smart insert views would remember the last values used.

  18. selecting a track selects layer

    When I'm working with RailModeller I find myself working in the wrong layer a lot because I forgot to select the track in the LayersListView on there right. It would be nice to automatically select the layer if you click on a track, so if you want to enhance that track it automatically adds the new track to the right layer.
