Hi Bill,

You mentioned chopping templates back to the end of the check rails, and to the switch toe (point blades).

To shorten a template to the end of the check rails, use the F4 mouse action. The next template can then be snapped directly onto the end of the main road using the SHIFT & JOIN F7 button. For the turnout road, you need to put the fixing peg on the TOLP peg position and snap the next template manually using the notch, or use the peg/align tools > snapping functions onto TOLP.

Alternatively, instead of F4 you can adjust the main road and turnout road exit lengths independently, and you would then snap on to the MEXITP and TEXITP peg positions.

To shorten the switch to the point blades by omitting the switch front, click the do > blank up to switch toe menu item. To snap on the next template there, use the TP peg position.

cheers,

Martin.
