Track bed outline #FeatureRequest


Robert Scott
 

Good day,

There must be something I am missing.
Have been to the site three times and cannot figure out how to add a ticket.
LMK?

Bob,

Suggest you go to the developer site https://sourceforge.net/projects/xtrkcad-fork/ and add a feature request ticket for this.

Bob,
The issue with the request is the last part - objects can only be on one layer. So a choice has to be made - turned on and off with the track drawing or an operation to produce a track bed object that is detached from the track. Conceptually the additional drawing option for track is much easier.

Adam,
Thanks for your thoughts.

If pieces of track could be selected and matching pieces of track bed placed under it, that is great.

Alternately, if the feature could be turned on for the whole layer, that works. If parts of the track do not need trackbed, move them to another layer w the same color track.

Will open account and create ticket demain

Done.

Attached is a small piece of a layout showing the effect I am after.
