  1. The ability to cut curved track (Cut sectional tracks to fit)

    There are times that I would like to use a half curve or third of a curve.

    When building a layout, I like to have the flexibility to cut curves into segments. Some companies offer half curves but others do not.

  2. Added to the Help section:

    A separate page describing the keyboard key functions in a list form. While the key strokes are mentioned in the pages that discuss respective actions, having one page that also summarizes the functions of usable keys will aid in learning how to use RailModeller Pro.

  4. Draw track centre lines

    Currently, its tricky to easily determine the track enters when doing parallel tracks. Drawing the centre lines like the old version did would make this simpler. Bonus points if the ruler will do a vertical / horizontal snap between these centre points...

  5. Ability to scale and rotate polygons

    Currently polygon points must be moved by hand. This feature would permit any polygon to be scaled by dragging side nodes, and rotated by dragging corner nodes as is currently supported with rectangles.

  6. Ability to narrow/hide or place track selections menu at bottom of screen; ability to hide or narrow options menu at right of screen.

    Previous version gave you more real estate to do your planning - maybe a right click not on anything would bring up a choice to show/hide one or the other of the menus.

  7. Keyboard shortcuts for Primary tools

    I really miss the old keyboard shortcuts to switch between the various tools (i.e. selection tool, ruler, colorize). I would love to see shortcuts added for those, as well as the smart insert options, especially for "connect with flex track"

  8. Exclusion filter for "close gap with tracks"

    I would prefer an exclusion filter for the close gap feature. For example I for excluding special tracks like TRIX 14999 or TRIX 14976.

  9. Move elements to back of front when grouped.

    Now moving elements to front or back needs every single element to be moved which is clumsy. Group them and with one click move to to front or back. Or even better: a desired layer which keeps them automatically at the right (hidden) level.

  10. Grouped items when duplicated should produced grouped duplicates

    When I duplicate a group of shapes or tracks, when the duplicate is produced it is not grouped and I have to remember to regroup them. That is a waste of time.

  11. snap to grid

    It would be great to have objects snap to the grid so alignment is easier. Especially for shapes drawn on the layout rather than for track pieces.

  12. Show disconnected tracks

    When creating a grade the system refuses to do it if the tracks are disconnected. In V4 there was a way to show disconnected tracks which has been lost. I spent hours to see which track was disconnected.

  13. Rulers on top and on left side of drawing pane

    Rulers on top of the drawing pane and on the let side would be very helpfull to see the actual size of a track plan.

    it would also help if you insert a new shape or lengthen / shorten flex track

  15. Zoom by specific percentages

    It would be useful to be able to zoom to specific user-defined percentages, rather than just 'in', 'out', '100%' and 'To Fit'.

    The inclusion of a text field that accepts a numeric value would be great.

  16. Being able to turn off the automatic "resize drawing board to fit"

    The baseboard size should be a fixed dimension. I want to fit my track to the eventual baseboard, not have the baseboard change dimensions.

  18. Flip an object around a horizontal or vertical axis

    It would be great to have the ability to flip a shape or line around a horizontal or vertical axis. For example, create a shape, copy and paste it, and then flip around an axis to create a mirror opposite of that shape.
