    Unfortunately, different vendors use a different track geometry (lengths, radii,
    different turnout angles and lengths, ...).
    The same applies even to different scale offerings for the same manufacturer, so I'm afraid no automatic mapping is possible between tracks.

    Update 6.4 adds search for layouts (https://www.railmodeller.com/news/railmodeller-pro-6-4-search-point-editor-improved-touch-bar-support.html) -

    An upcoming update will enhance the search feature with replace functionality.

    Definitely planned -
    a search/replace feature across layouts, stock and track libraries is scheduled for the near future!

    Two modes:
    - Anchor point selector
    - Joint selector, A/B (plain tracks)

    Compare 'Transform panel' in Affinity products, e.g.
    https://affinity.help/publisher/English.lproj/pages/Panels/transformPanel.html

    Position by anchor can be useful in certain cases but it's probably not a very commonly used feature.
    Would a positioning popup help, that could be invoked via the contextual menu of an element (or the menu bar)?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    While that would be great to have it would also be quite a lot of work.
    However, such functionality could be added as a dedicated, similarly priced new app!

    Electrical planning is scheduled for a future release.
    At this point we can't give any time frame.

    So basically this would boil down to
    - Selecting a curve track radius
    - Selecting a switch
    - Performing a variation of the 'Close Gap' function for both straight segments

    (gray in attached image)

    Could be interesting if there's enough traction for this idea in the user base.

    Sounds like a great idea, though it's more complicated if you think about it in more detail -

    The app can give you the optimal number of flex tracks that need to be purchased, but you'd then have an amazing puzzle at your hand figuring out how to cut the flex tracks into pieces and where the individual pieces would go on your layout..

    I.e. just providing a number (minimum number of flex tracks) unfortunately isn't a satisfactory solution.
    Having said that, we're thinking about a pragmatic approach!

    ..that would make sense for favorite *libraries*, right?

    My understanding is that this request is about favorite *elements* withing a library.
    Kinda like a stock for parts you don't necessarily own (yet).

    A dedicated point editor for entering precise coordinates of baseboard corner points will be included in the next major update.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    In the short term we're also planning to enable editing the individual coordinates of baseboards (as well as lines, polys, ..), which might also help getting precise baseboard shapes.

    This same limitation currently applies to slot car tracks with multiple lanes.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminRailModeller (Manager, RailModeller) commented  · 

    At this point grades are restricted to plain tracks, i.e. not for complex tracks like crossing, switches or multi-lane slot car tracks.
    The height can be set for any kind of track, though.

    Basically print just a smaller section of the entire track plan;
    Either the currently visible part or a custom selection.

    This came up a couple of times.. it would be quite a specialized feature but possibly useful for a number of people.

    Let’s see how much support it get’s in the feature request system!

    Thanks for the input! Just trying to understand - when printing is not an option how would being able to automatically draw the center point for curves help in construction?

    Creating custom track libraries will be possible with the Library Editor module currently used internally and to be released as an optional add-on for all users soon.

    User Comment ( Aug 5, 2019 ):

    Eine einfache Straßenerstellung mittels Bezier-Kurve + Angabe der Straßenbreite. Gerne auch mit Farbauswahl und wenn noch Luft ist, mit und ohne Mittelstreifen (auswählbar).

    RailModeller Pro 6.0.4 introduces the "Shift Tracks Up/Down" functionality to adjust track heights for an arbitrary selection of track elements whilst keeping the grades.

    Absolutely - multiple tracks should be easy to adjust in height no matter how they're connected. The planned 'Change Height' tool is supposed to address this (in the coming weeks).

    a new tool to simply push/pull a track to adjust its (+ connected tracks) height while keeping grades could make track height adjustments less tedious.

    Hi Harald,

    thanks for your input. It's on the to-do list but unfortunately resources for a small project like ours are limited.

    Additional note:

    Max. elevation constraint will be added as an optional setting for each layout.
    All layout constraints will appear as messages or warnings and won't prevent users from 'violating' them.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminRailModeller (Manager, RailModeller) commented  · 

    Max. elevation per layout will be added soon.

    Grades >10% - which is already very steep, usually 4-5% shouldn't be exceeded - are a problem since at this much inclination tracks are starting to get significantly shorter (as viewed from above) and we cannot guarantee the connections between tracks make sense any more..

    Technically it would be relatively easy to detach all tracks in such a hidden/detached layer.

    However -
    While it could be a useful feature for advanced users it would be potentially dangerous for casual users of the app, i.e. effectively offering an option to "shoot yourself in the foot" when activating this feature by accident and subsequently planning layouts that cannot be built physically.
