Returning  to Templot - I have just restarted flirting with Templot and sort of getting to grips with aspects of this new web version.

Jumping in at the deep end, it is for Om 1:45 (metre gauge 22.4mm or thereabouts) the small amount of commercial (toy) track that I has a sleeper spacing of about the same as Peco O scale standard gauge, and sleeper width of 7mm.

After spending some hours doing bits to try to sort out some basic pointwork and only having one toy-ish point to compare it all with, all went wrong with a spurious length of plain track appearing across the junction that I had just created and could not find a way of deleting it.

Is there a simple shortcut to "undo last action", as I have not found one?

There are several ways to undo changes to the control template (brown and black). You may need to repeat it several times to get back to where you want to be. There are 80 slots in the rollback register:

1. press or hold down CTRL+U keys. Press CTRL+D to return if you go back too far.

2. click or hold down the blue left-arrow button <- at the top of the screen.

3. hold down the SHIFT+CTRL keys and roll the mouse wheel forward or back.

Bear in mind that the control template is not part of your track plan. If it is obscuring your work, simply move it out of the way (F7 mouse action).

If the unwanted template is a background template (blue and green), click on it, and then click delete on its menu which pops up on the left.

regards,

Martin.

Roger,

Is the spurious track a background template or the control template ?  If it is a background template you can just click on it and select delete on the menu that comes up. Changes to the control template can be rolled back from the Do menu. Always a good idea to save your work on a regular basis ( Files>Save all templates option ) so if you mess up and can't figure out what to do you can get back to a few steps ago.

Rob

you will always create a few unnecessary copies of a template , I usually go around making the, the control , then hit delete to see if theres anything underneath . at least with a control , there is an undo, There is no easy undo afaik if you delete a background template

well now, theres something I never considered, as the mac is always  CMD Z, and parallels nominally maps it onto the ctrl key , but after many weeks of staring at Templot, I missed that  :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

as Sherlock Holmes ( A C Doyle was a distant relative by the way ) , said " there are none so blind as those that will not see
