  1. Make minor adjustments to angle/position of a flex track element without disconnecting it from the adjacent track

    Instead of disconnecting from flex track when fiddling a turnout into the ideal position the flex track would adjust automatically and stay connected, if possible.

  3. Quicklook integration

    A plugin for the quicklook API of the Finder would be great
    to enable you to see a preview of the track plan, without the need to actual open it.

    This would save some time when you browse through various versions of your plans. Sometimes the name is not enough to find the right file, especially if the last time you used it is longer ago.

  4. One-click post to Twitter

    Love to upload to Twitter with one click. Instead of Export graphic, go to Twitter, create a post and upload have a "Share to Twitter" feature in the app!

  5. Google Maps as background

    Planning of realistic stations and tracks would be much easier, if Google Maps could be opened, moved and zoomed to fit in a background-layer. With this, one could position tracks exactly as in reality.

  6. The ability to elevate double track, crossing and switches

    Pretty self-explanatory, without it, the elevation feature is close to useless

  7. 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

    RailModeller Pro 6.4 is now available featuring a new inspector for baseboard elements with a dedicated point editor review and edit individual corner points of baseboard elements

  9. 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.

  10. Adjustable tolerance for sectional track joints.

    Allow for an adjustable tolerance, i.e. a "snap-to" angle adjustment for sectional track. Duplicating plans from magazines often results in sections that do not connect in RM, but will in real life without much stress on the tracks.

  11. 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.

  12. Layer List: Right Click a Layer > Select All

    Going back & forth between the Layer Menu and the Toolbar is wasting time. We need the ability to Right Click a Layer to Select All in active layer.

  14. Improve Function of Parts List Feature

    When using parts list (Option+Command+L) it would be great to click on one line-tem in the list and have those items automatically highlighted in the layout. This would be fantastic as the layout is clearly visible behind the list. This would be a valuable aid in seeing exactly where list parts are in the layout. Maybe develop some sort of "replace with equivalent part" features. Just asking: Thanks.

  15. 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.

  16. Part list management (Stock)

    In the old version we had the feature to crate a stock list of existing parts, so you could, during development, compare your actuel needs against the available. Needless to say that tis influenced the layout at the end.

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. Easy drawing of dimensions

    I'd like to be able to draw dimensions on the layout. This would be really helpful for track building.

    At present I have to use the ruler to measure and then draw manually the dimension, it is a real pain.
