AnyRail remembers settings between sessions, but also saves them with each layout.

Measurement systemChoose from cm, mm, inches with fractions or decimals
DecimalsSet the display accuracy of all values
LengthThe length of the work area on screen. Make it somewhat larger than your train table
WidthThe width of the work area on screen. Make it somewhat larger than your train table
GridShow a grid
SizeSize of a square of the grid
BackgroundPut the grid underneath everything else
EndpointThe drawing size of an endpoint. An endpoint is the outer end of a piece of track
ConnectionThe drawing size of a connection. The connection is the circle denoting that two pieces of track are connected
Control pointThe drawing size of the control points. These are the points to manipulate flex track and lines
Alert on flex too longWhen checked, overstretched flex appears red
Alert on too sharp curvesWhen checked, too-tightly curved flex appears red
Minimum radiusRadius used for determining when Alert in too sharp curves triggers
DistanceThe maximum distance allowed allowed between connecting endpoints
AngleThe maximum angle allowed between connecting endpoints
Maximum %The maximum percentage allowed on slopes
AutoconnectAutomatically connect track when endpoints are close enough
Allow mixed railsWhen checked, any track with the same gauge will connect. Uncheck to make sure you use the correct transition track
Snap to gridMakes lines and surfaces snap to an underlying grid. The left upper point of the line or surface is aligned with the grid
