Sometimes I find tracks on my partlist, which I want to exchange on my layout. But I don't see a possibility to easily find them and get them replaced.
It would be helpful to search for e.g. a certain part number and get these track highlighted on the layout. Maybe with the additional feature to search these certain tracks on the whole layout but also only on certain layers.124 votes
Update 6.4.2 extends the new search feature with the ability to select matches in the current layout
I know there's an existing thread for a fully functional iPad version, but in lieu of that, I was wondering if there's any possibility of a sort of paired down companion app for iPad. A nice little viewer application that allows you to zoom in and out and show/hide layers would be really handy when out in the garage working. I'd happily throw down $20 or so for something like that, especially if it allowed me to support creation of a fully fledged version down the road.115 votes
The latest version of our app for iPadOS now features a ‘+’ button in the catalog for opening local (private) layouts e.g. from iCloud Drive:
Sometimes you want to have a zero level and some tracks below it. I am planning a layout with a switchyard below the tracks where to park some of my trains. It would be natural to have this at -9cm, but I had to move all my "ground" layout to 9 cm because I cannot specify negative numbers.108 votes
Tracks can be positioned at arbitrary heights between -10m .. 10m in RailModeller Pro 6.1
I'm a Mac user of JMRI, in fact most of the code is written on Macs. I just got notice that AnyRail (PC only) has created an export to JMRI (specifically to its PanelPro component) that allows a track plan to be exported from AR, imported into PP and then run the layout using JMRI's controls.
I'd really like to see an export for RM.100 votes
JMRI Export is now available in RailModeller Pro 6.1
Option to hide tunnel sections so you can see only the visible parts of the model. This gives a better understanding of the design.89 votes
Tunnel section visibility can be controlled in the new ‘3D Display Options’ section of Document properties in RailModeller Pro 6.1
I'd like to import a graphic file of a sketch of a layout (Jpeg, gif eps or pdf)and use this as the basis to build my trackplan.86 votes
No available in RailModeller Pro 5.2
Update (12/2018): Any open track connection should be terminated by a generic bumper if desired to clean up layouts.
Prellböcke sollten als Gleisabschluß erkannt werden und nicht mehr als offenes Gleis markiert werden wenn ausgewählt ist: Dokument - "Offene Verbindungen hervorheben".
Ebenso sollte bei Prellböcken, welche ein Gleis beinhalten und die nicht nur auf Gleis gestellt werden, der Schienenweg mit eingezeichnet werden. Bsp: TT Tillig 83100 hat 41,5mm Gleis.83 votes
The new “Track Decorations” section in the “Element” menu now offers commands to terminate any plain track (straight, curve, flex) with an open track connection using a generic bumper.
More customization options (bumper shapes, colors) to follow in later updates!
For radiused curves (e.g., sectional track, but especially flextrack which is bent to a specific radius), I would like to be able to find out the coordinates of the center of that curve -- i.e., the point where all the radii meet. This would make laying out the physical track, roadbed, splines, etc. a lot easier when it comes time to do the benchwork.79 votes
Version 6.4.15 on includes a new Track Style option under Document > Display Settings to display the circle center of curved tracks.
One thing that can confuse people when they see layout designs is what is a tunnel and what is not. While the portals may help some Putting a transparent layer over them would make a lot of sense to a lot more.78 votes
Tunnel tracks are now available in update 5.1
(from our back log)
Obsolete elements can be indicated in the Library Catalog.
An option to remove these elements from the list would make it easier to pick only current tracks for track systems with a mix of out-of-production and current tracks73 votes

when you edit flex track it, by default, only has 3 control handles and if you want to make an S shape you have to click the gear and then the "Use 4 control points" button. If it could either be set to always have either 3 or 4 depending on preference or a keyboard shortcut such as
"⌘3" for 3 points and "⌘4" for 4 points that would be top.67 votes
RailModeller 6.2 now provides an option to set the default for newly inserted flex tracks to use 4 control points via the settings menu (gears icon) in the flex track properties.
Now: if you select a flexible track to change its length and/or radius, the actual value jumps back to standard which is absolutely needless. The chosen values must stay and we need the chance to change exactly these values as often as we want.66 votes
Now avaiable with RailModeller Pro 5.0.6
I would like to access the shared layouts (Community) from my iPad64 votes
We have released a new iPad app for browsing, downloading and discussing Community Layouts:
It would be helpful if the community layout browser showed the layout size in your preferred units somewhere. Some layouts put the size in the title, which means you have a confusing mix of metric and US measures.
The benefit is that you know you have a certain baseboard size, so you want to start with something that fits.63 votes
The (actually used) size of layouts is now prominently displayed in the Community Layouts browser and layout details in RailModeller Pro 6.1
This is now available with the current version 6.0.4!
Currently, a grouped section of track does not snap to other track sections when being relocated. adding a snap function to grouped elements would make alignment of grouped elements faster.58 votes
The feature was added for RailModeller Pro and is available in the current version (5.0.3).
If you print the track plan out full size, it's hard to then connect all the individual papers together accurately as there are no marks or grids shown. I though this was in a previous version.57 votes
Alignment marks are now available as a new option in the print dialog with recent maintenance update 6.4.16
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.56 votes
The new ‘3D Options’ section now offers functionality to export an image of the current 3D scene in RailModeller Pro 6.1
Where available (i.e. newer Mac Books) add some touch bar support for quick access to e.g. the Quick Filter and other functions56 votes
