Hi

I'm converting a complex layout from Scale 7 to S4-X. On conversion, some of the turnouts turnout roads are ending up too long. 

I wondered what I'm doing wrong, if anything... 

Below is a simple example, just to show what's happened:



I've attached the box file as well..

Hi Richard,

You have found a bug. :(  Thanks for reporting it.

The problem is that you have set geometry > turnout road exit length to the adjustable setting.

That option is not being honoured properly when doing the conversion. Sorry about that.

For the template illustrated you could change to normal. But that won't be convenient in many cases, so I will get it fixed as soon as possible.

In the meantime your only fix is to adjust the exit length manually on each converted turnout (CTRL+F12 mouse action).

If you have a lot to do, you might like to set up a custom conversion factor of 4/7ths (0.5714) for use at geometry > template lengths (in mm)... menu item.

thanks again,

Martin.

I do have a lot to do, and no time at the moment to do it. So if it's on your to-do list, then I'm happy to wait until you get round to it.

Many thanks

Richard
