  2. ability to alter opacity of the 3d track shadows

    The solid black shadows in 3d view are too intense. I'd like to be able to configure the shadows to a less intense colour by or transparency

  3. Gruppieren

    Es wäre sinnvoll, wenn man mehrere Gleise und Weichen gruppieren könnte, dann hätte man die Möglichkeit komplette Gleiskombinationen und heufog benutzte Weichenkombinationen zu verschieben. Schön währe auch, wenn man sich eigene Gleise erstellen und im Gleiskatalog ablegen könnte.

  4. Better handling a small track sections

    When laying track, moving the smallest pieces is very much hit and miss.

    Selecting such track is already complicated, leading to a zoom, and a careful mouse drag to select it.

    If I try to move a very small item, I end up either:
    - rotating it
    - attaching a new piece of track to it mistakenly

    At the moment, I workaround the issue by carefully selecting the track, deleting it, to then add it again in the desired spot.

    It would be nice of the software could behave in a simple "point", "click" to select then "drag" to new…

  5. Ability to place rolling stock on track to verify track capacity

    It would be nice to be able to put rolling stock on the track to verify things like track capacity and clearances.

    The Alt-Scroll function zooms the layout, currently keeping the current center whenever possible.

    The current selection can be centered using the View > Center on Selection function (Control-C)!

  10. Alt-scroll for zoom centred on the mouse cursor

    When alt-scrolling to zoom, the zoom point seems to be in the centre of the canvas. This is annoying when the feature to be zoomed is near the edge of the layout, because I need to zoom - scroll - zoom - scroll ... .

    Can the zoom point default to under the mouse cursor instead?

  11. I would like the ability to set the baseline height, rather than always being zero. i

    If the baseplate height of benchwork is 48 inches, all track laid at that elevation should be shown at 48 vs 0. this would help with multi level designs and various changing elevations.

  12. I would like to see a minimum radius default value

    when curving flex track it would be helpful to set a radius that you desire, vs having to use track pieces of 18,22,24 inch radius to create constant curves.

    Thanks -
    Track libraries are updated continuously.

    Our track libraries are tracked internally as we depend on external sources (vendors) not under our control. ME track is on our schedule of track libraries to be included

    Cheers!

  14. eine Probe Lokfahrt auf dem Entwurf

    • Nach Fertigstellung wäre es toll wenn eine Pseudo Lok zu Testzwecken das Gleisbild abfahren könnte um zu erkennen ob alle Spuren logisch zu befahren sind.
    • Warum wird bei Programmstart nicht der letzte Entwurf geöffnet?

  15. Insert text boxes

    A simple way to label and/or annotate the layout would be great.

    Luckily this is already possible:

    Simple geometric shapes and text can be inserted using the Shape pop-up menu in the toolbar.

    The ‘Shapes’ chapter in the help manual provides some additional details.

  16. Building Blocks

    I would like to be able to add new Catalog categories, in which I could put selected elements or groups of elements. So I could have together track elements I often use, or precomposed groups of track elements as building blocks.

    Thanks for the feedback -
    Luckily this is already possible:

    Just select the baseboard layer, switch to the ‘Select and Edit’ baseboard tool to select the baseboard in question and enter the desired rotation angle in the sidebar to the right.

    Additional details are also provided in the “Baseboard Tools” section in the user guide!

  18. Additional right-click functionality

    I'm used to right-clicking to bring up context-specific options, and would like to see more of that in RM. As an example, I don't use RM all the time, and whenever I bring it up I have to spend 10 minutes remembering how to bend flex-track. (And every time it's "Oh yeah, duh, just double-click"). Suggest adding "Bend" when right-clicking a flex-track element, to accomplish the same thing. Another example - add "Format" when a text shape is right-clicked, to accomplish the Cmd-T function for text size and font.

    Thanks for the feedback -

    “Bend”:
    Luckily this is already possible today!

    The “Edit” function has the same effect as double-clicking elements or using the Element > Edit command from the menu bar.

    This is true not only for flex tracks but all kinds of editable elements!

    “Format”:
    We have added a dedicated inspector for text elements for the upcoming 6.4 update that will show the text of the selected text element in the sidebar to the right as well as feature a button to directly invoke the Font Palette.

  19. A switch in the element drop down

    I want a switch in the element drop down that turns off the element title from the display. For example, the track "SL 1500" or "Flex 18" shows up on my drawing, but I want a way to not show it so when I print the drawing, I get a nice picture of what I want to accomplish. If a toggle allowed that to show or not show, I could use a drawing with it on to independently determine how the railroad would be built (show), and shown (not show).

  20. On the community layouts that are uploaded, please show each piece's details for each track

    on the community layouts that are uploaded, please show each piece's details for each track piece, specifically for Slot Cars. I've looked at OwlGuy's layouts, but I'd like to see either part number or dimensions. IE, 15 " long. his uses color per track piece but there is no correlation to each color's meaning. IE, brown is 9" curve
