Dear all,

The latest Templot program update is now available. Version 218a.

Your copy of Templot should update automatically if you restart it and follow the instructions.

If you have any problems with that, see the download and notes at:

 http://templot.com/companion/installation.php

The main change in this update is the new tools > make 3-way tandem turnout > function.

For more information please see this page:

 http://templot.com/companion/3_way_tandem_turnouts.php

which I shall be expanding in the next few days.

regards,

Martin.

Gosh, Martin, that's brilliant!  All those hours spent fiddling with partial templates, and now Templot does most of it for you!
One teeny little point - when I updated the program, it wanted to install in a folder called Templot 2, instead of Templot2.  Knowing your dislike of spaces in filenames, that surprised me.  I'm not sure how long that's been the case though as I tend to do my own thing, but if someone previously had Templot installed in a Templot2 folder, they might wonder where all their work has gone.  I'm fairly sure Templot2 came from a previous default install, and I didn't change the folder name, but I could be wrong!

Oh, of course it all installed beautifully, as always. :D

Cheers,
Paul

It's not just dislike, it will stop some things working, such as the FBR video player.

If you change the installation folder, the installer remembers it and offers the same location next time.

The default location is C:\TEMPLOT_DEV\ for Templot2.

That's a legacy from the Templot Development Version which was available for a time alongside the previous Templot zero.  Remember?

I may have briefly used a folder called Templot2 or Templot_2 (no spaces) but I would never ever have used one called Templot 2 (with a space), so if that is what you have on your system it must have been set by you. :)

I strongly recommend that you change it. The best way is

1. rename the folder.

2. run the installer again, and set that renamed folder. You can find the installer at ..\internal\upd\ . Or download from the web site.

That way the file associations will be updated in the Windows registry.

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin
I'm officially puzzled!  Of course, your default folder name has always been TEMPLOT_DEV - I'd forgotten that.  I've always used the folder Templot2 because of the spaces issue and I don't like capitals (also to separate it from my Tempot 0.91c stuff at the time of the changeover) so I'm puzzled as to how I ended up with all my work in "Templot2" as well as an adjacent folder called "Templot 2" with just a clean install of 2.16c (b?).  The install would have remembered where it was updating from, as you say, and I wouldn't have put a space in unless I had a senior moment.

I must have just had a brain-fade at some point - sorry to bother you!

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Martin


Templot 2.18a loaded onto both my computers without a probem, and now reside in TEMPLOT_DEV/templot_2. It seems to work OK, so there is no point in changing the folder name to 'tempot2'?

A happy new year to all, and thank you verry much.

John

That advice was for Paul. :)

No-one else should change it.

cheers,

Martin.

I have just now replied on RMweb:


 
To get the missing rail back, click the reset derived partial template menu item, see:
 

 
To shorten or lengthen timbers at the number end, hold down the SHIFT key while clicking the shorten or lengthen buttons (or while pressing S or L).
 
If you use the mouse actions instead of the buttons, alternate between adjusting the length and the throw to change the timber at the number end.
 
You can swap the numbers to the other end by changing the hand of plain track, but that won't work for turnouts.
 
All this stuff will be at:

 http://templot.com/companion/3_way_tandem_turnouts.php

in due course. I'm stuck with a chicken and egg situation when trying to keep the web site in sync with the Templot versions, or vice versa.
 
regards,
 
Martin.
