  1. Export 3D view as image

    If Export as image is selected in 3D view, Railmodeller always generates a 2D image. I would like an option to generate a 3D view as 3D image.

  2. Zooming should center on cursor location

    When holding down the Option key to zoom with the mouse, the zooming feature should center on the location of the mouse cursor to eliminate the need for scrolling after being zoomed in. That way the user can control exactly what part of the lay out should be enlarged.

  3. coordinates for current pointer location

    This would ideally take a couple of forms: first would be to have an (X,Y) display somewhere that would track the scaled coordinates of the mouse pointer, second would be to have cursors going along the rulers which would also track the mouse.

  4. Parallel tracks for correct track distance as a function

    If you want to start a new track, it would be convenient to have an option to place two parallel tracks in the correct distance. For Märklin C-track 74mm or 64.5mm and so on

  5. A library of T-TRAK Modules

    We need a library of n scale T-TRAK modules for those of us who are architects of modular layouts at train shows. The "standards" for modules can be found on

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Customizable display type when showing grades

    At the moment grades are displayed as 1/1000 (per mille) but other parts of the globe prefer percent or ratio.

    It should be handled similarly to units (inch/feet/cm/..)

  9. Measure tool (Snapping)

    The Measure tool is nice but it is difficult to measure exact distance between two elements. It might be an idea to make it glue to the edges of the element in some way so that it "finds" the same point in the other element (e.g. from left side of rail to left side of rail). Also, an indication of the angle from the underlying element would be nice so that one knows that the result is the shortest distance.
    At the moment, measuring with 3 decimals is pointless if I don't know if I measure exactly 90 degrees from…

  12. An easier way to draw the table top (Baseboards)

  13. Text fields convert between units

    It would be nice if text fields like position x/y/z, track length, canvas w/h, could automatically convert between units.

    For example I prefer to work in cm, but sometimes I need to size something in inches. So it would be nice to write '16 "' or something and have that converted to cm, instead of reaching for the calculator.

    OmniGraffle does this also, and it is pretty useful.

  14. Grade Kato Double Track

    The ability to to grade Kato N (an HO I am sure) scale double track pieces and super elevated track sections. Not being able to do so is a huge barrier in my design.

    Maintenance update 6.4.22 now handles parallel track elements (tracks with two parallel 'lanes') in the


    • Create Grade to Track (Single Start Track)
    • Grade a Track Section (Multiple, Connected Tracks)

  15. Minor amendment to line-editing

    In line editing:
    When editing a line, moving one vertex point ontop of another should amalgamate the two into a single vertex point.

  16. introduction of catalogues of buildings or decoration the same way as track

    It would be interesting to introduce catalogues of houses, decoration (like water pumps, cranes, etc) in the same way as the tracks exist.

  18. Shift-select to select a range of track

    Click one track, shift select further down the track, and have it select all the tracks in between (shortest path). This would let you colour sidings and mainlines and the like much more easily.

  19. 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.
