  2. 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....

  3. 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"

  4. Enhancement to print dialog zoom factor setting & visibility of value used for fit-to-page

    I am a new user of the Pro version. I design modules using the program. It is helpful to print my modules at the same scale (zoom factor) so that I can visualize different configurations of the modules. For that use case I really need each printout to be at the same scale.

    But unfortunately when I print using "fit to page", I have no idea what zoom factor was used. Nor can I specify that same zoom factor for other printouts. Unfortunately the available options 1;1, 1:2, 1;5, 1;10 are also not flexible enough. In order to maximize the…

  9. Parts Purchase List

    an option that would show just the parts for a specific layer:
    You could put all tracks related to a certain stage (e.g. just the new tracks) in a particular layer and then just create the part list for that one layer.

  10. Revamp Flex Track Calculations

    When calculating parts (View: Shows Parts), program should add TOTAL NUMBER of linear inches of flex track then divide by thirty. Not count each piece separately. Currently gives overblown count on flex track sections.

  13. Movement of shapes with arrow keys.

    Movement of shapes with arrow keys one pixel at a time. It's too difficult to be precise with the mouse or trackpad.

  14. Positive and negative current rails, and isolators

    Would be nice to have a very simple function such as viewing the positive and negative rails on the track. We can then easily identify the risk of short circuit and position of reverse loop module (if working with DCC). Would be also nice if we could add isolators on rails, to work with blocks for feedback

    thanks

  17. Be able to "option - drag" an element on the drawing to be able to duplicate it.

    I'd like to be able to hold down the option key and drag a new element from one that is already in the layout. As in other graphics programs like Adobe Illustrator.

  18. 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.

  19. Added to the introductory video narrative on YouTube:

    The introductory video narrative on YouTube clarified by including which keyboard keys [e.g. "option" "shift" "control" "space bar" or "command"] are being used when track elements are shown being inserted, deleted, selected, moved as a group and managed. The tools icons alone might not the only functions used to accomplish a task in handling track elements and designing a layout.

  20. 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.
