Hello Martin,
One question I've always wanted to ask, but I've never have because maybe there were more important issues to address - altering PEG position.  

You've used a little box with a red numeral in it to tell us the position of the PEG on a template - and I've found this very useful.  To change the PEG position on plain track I can click the number to change it, but on a turnout, clicking does not give me the full range of alternative positions.  I've always wondered why?

regards

Philip

Hi Philip,

All the peg positions are available in the menu at geometry > peg positions >. It's at the bottom of the menu for faster access.

In addition, the most frequently used positions have keyboard shortcuts in the range CTRL+0 (zero) to CTRL+9.

Clicking the red indicator is intended to be a quick way of toggling between the two ends of a template, which is the most frequent need. If it scrolled through the full list that usefulness would be lost. Also not all the positions have unique identifiers in the indicator, so it wouldn't always be clear which position was selected.

Nowadays the fixing peg is not used explicitly so much as in the early days of Templot. If you use the full range of make functions in the tools menu, and the peg/align tools > snap functions in each template's own menu, you will find the need to set the peg directly doesn't arise very often. So rapid access to the settings isn't really needed.

regards,

Martin.
