    Luckily all of that is already possible:

    To show all slot car layouts you can enter the 'Slot Car' tag into the filter bar or clicking on the Slot Car tag of any layout containing slot cars.

    To show just your own submissions you can log into your account and select the 'My Layouts' category on the left.

    In addition all layouts by an author can be listed simply by clicking on the author's name.

    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!

    Recent versions add the ability to filter the Library Catalog to only include items present in the stock

    ..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.

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

    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?

    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!

    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.

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

    You could use the 'Element > Duplicate' command to replicate the flex bent to a specific angle multiple times

    That could be tricky -
    How to adjust individual points for a line with an arbitrary number of points when the length is changed?

    However, editing individual point coordinates would be nice-to-have - plus we already have implemented something very similar in the (not yet publicly available) Library Editor module.

    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.

    The interactive height adjustment tool is scheduled for a v6.x update in early 2018

    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.

    could you name some of the other programs you've mentioned so we can have a look? Cheers!

    Hi Harald,

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

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

    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.

    Thanks - tabbing between entry fields and the layout area works on some machines but apparently this not for all macOS versions.

    We'll investigate!

    Quick update: We'll plan to add a 'force connect' function to the app soon once our major update 6.0 has been released to the public later this year or early 2018!

    Version 5.0.11 also re-introduces an option to highlight tracks that are not connected

    Version 5.0.11 introduces preferences for track tolerances.
    This (optionally) allows tracks to be recognized as connected even if they don't perfectly align.

    Thanks for the input - treating modules pretty much as immutable groups sounds like the best way forward at this point. Possibly with the inclusion of a baseboard!

    Definitely on the road map at some point.
    It would also be awesome to share modules online and allow people to build 'virtual club layouts' by combining the online modules - and share the 'club layouts' online as well, or at least share a picture..
