I was working on a trackplan over a custom map yesterday. Saved the templates and shapes but on reopening the map image is not anywhere to be seen. Have I lost it for good? I thought Templot saved it as a shape on quit? The map is extant as a jpg but was rescaled in Templot to fit the new gauge I'd changed it to, and custom rotated to fit an odd baseboard.Is there anyway of getting it back or is it a case of redoing the whole thing again?

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Hi Ian,

Go to the recent shapes list and click the first item on the list which comes up:



It should be the last file you saved.

On quitting Templot asks you if you want to save your background shapes. You would explicitly have to say no, not to save them.

By default, background shapes are saved in BGS3 files in your

 C:\TEMPLOT_DEV\SHAPE-FILES\

folder.

cheers,

Martin.

It saved my baseboard outline but not the image. Guess I'll have to start again and be more careful.
Thanks anyway
