  1. baseboard elevation

    I'm doing a multi-layer layout and would love to have more then 1 base board level, since my 2nd level is just floating in mid air.

    So with that, being able to adjust base board level - would be awesome. Also more then 1 base board layer would work well here.

  2. the ability to align shapes drawn with the shape tool where you are able to align the tops, centres or bottoms vertically or horizontally.

    I'd like to be able to select multiple shapes and align them but clicking a button. Being able to align the tops, centre or bottom either vertically or horizontally would be great when drawing buildings along the side of a road or track.

  3. The ability to highlight multiple sections of track and create a parallel section of track

    So if you have a highlighted curved section, section with points included or "S" section of multiple track elements. I would be handy to have the ability to create a parallel of it with the options of setting distance apart, exceed minimum and recommended radius warning, follow inside or outside curve of track so as to create parallel track to points radius.

  4. Package quantities for pricing in the parts list.

    Currently when looking at the required parts list for a layout the price of the parts does not take into account the number of that part in a package from the manufacturer. As an example, I require 3 straight sections of track to complete my layout. These sections are sold in packs of 4 at a price of $8.00. If I plug in the $8.00 for the package of 4 (how they are sold) the system will multiply that cost to $24.00 because it thinks each individual track costs $8.00.

  5. Snap-on items

    About items such as the Märklin 7391 or 7389 buffer stops that clip on the rails, but that are not tracks per se, it would still be nice if there was a way to have then snap on to the track (any position for a buffer) and stay connected when we move the track.

    Just groupping the elements is not really a good solution, since there are transformations (movements) that change the relative position of the grouped elements, and since that also prevents some operations on the track (since the group is identified as an heterogeneous group).

    This could apply…

  6. Curve radius presets and options

    Many O Scale Locomotives and passenger cars require a minimum radius of O72. According to the creator of fastback most will run on as tight a cutie as O48 at reasonable speeds.

    Allow users to preset a minimum curve of O72 with optional use of O60 and O48 curves in specific situations. Concurrently, display only the library for the minimum curve and above unless tighter radiuses are opted for.

  7. The length of each rail on slot tracks (lanes)

    Currently we can't see the length of each rail tracks, it is important have a balanced track to run the races.

  8. Contour lines for drawing terrain

    The polygon tool is a headache because it inserts drag points in ways you don't want and you have to double click to undo them.

    Simple contour lines with and assignable height would simplify terrain drawing.

  9. Use Layers for Alternatives (Detach Layers)

    I'm in the process of updating a layout to the new version of the software. In that process, I've decided to design two different alternatives for some optional add-ons to the layout. However, those alternatives are mutually exclusive and require replacing a couple of track segments in order to provide the correct interface to the main layout.

    It would be nice if I could hide the layer for Option 1 and then connect tracks to the now (apparently) disconnected tracks on other layers in the Option 2 layer.

    Essentially, it would be nice if there was a way to tell…

  10. Show / hide grades on Document tab

    It seems weirdly inconstant to have the Show / hide grades labels under the View tab for often it's used. It should be under Element Labels as a check box

  11. T-TRAK modules for N scale (actual size..)

    The T-TRAK standards has modules for simple and corner shape

    'Single module size for N-Scale is 12 1⁄8 inches (310 mm) wide by 8 1⁄4 inches (210 mm) deep. Depth of a straight module can be up to the size of a corner module (usually 14 3⁄8 inches (370 mm)). Depth is often 12 inches (300 mm), 13 inches (330 mm), or 14 inches (360 mm) inches, rather than the full size of a corner module. This allows more space for scenery, and does not crowd the center of the table. Corner modules are 14 3⁄8 inches (370 mm) square'

  12. Fine-Tuned Label Visibility Controls

    Ability to individually turn element labels for tracks to the "off' position without losing other element labels such as for labelled shapes. In order to see the labelled comments for various shapes, the "All" button within Element Labels needs to be selected, but the labels for all the various track pieces may interfere with the ability to see the labels on shapes easily due to clutter.

  13. Display imperial units using fractions

    When using inches instead of displaying a decimal, e.g. 12.25" instead use a fraction rounded to the nearest 1/16", e.g.

    12 1/4"

    US tape measures don't use decimals and converting measurements shown with the ruler tool as well as the Element panel to 1/16" is cumbersome.

  14. Kehrschleifendetector (Reversing loop detector)

    I would like a function that would allow me to display the polarisation of the rail in the plan, e.g. blue for minus, red for plus. This would make it possible to discover the reverse loops during the planning phase.
    It would be a very helpful function that would save a lot of troubleshooting time.

  15. CTC graphics as a "Track Type"

    CTC machines use standard graphics to show switches, tracks, signals, blocks, etc. It would be nice to be able to select a set of graphic elements that you can plug together to create a CTC model board. These parts could be a form of "track" with connectors.

  16. Named track items and groups

    It would be nice feature to be able to give tracks and track groups a name. This name could then optionally be displayed in the layout (permanently or on hover). This saves creating a lot of TEXT.

    The named tracks and groups could then be listed along with the total section length (and maybe exported?).

    A distinction could be made between "Track groups" for blocks and "Turnout groups" for turnouts and crossings.

  17. Restore “Last Used Library” Along With Layout Documents

    Streamlining the process of track library selection for any specific layout, it might be beneficial to include the "last used library" as part of the document.

    When loading the layout, the Library Catalog will restore the library that was last utilized when working on the layout.

    A global preference could be added to enable or disable this feature.
