When you hover a line, you'll see the segment length and the overall length on the status bar, e.g. 34/114.
The overall length is the length of all the line segments combined.

1.  Draw a line.
2.  Click on one control point
3.  Move cursor to other control point
4.  At the bottom toolbar you will see the length of that line.

Wish list / Line lengths or ruler shaping
Last post by vvarady - February 26, 2021, 10:15:47 pm
Hi
I have a layer using "lines" showing how each power district is routed, but unlike the "ruler" there is no way to determine end to end length. If I use "ruler" I can only make straight lines.
This would be very helpful when determining how much wire I need for any kind of wiring such as sensors.
Individual line lengths could be shown down below like for rulers OR allow to "add points" to a ruler to allow shaping.

Thanks

Hi Kurt,

I can see one problem with that, and that is the fact that the choice of track display format is a universal one, not specific to individual pieces of track. Your best bet for what you want is probably to use coloured Sections. The colour will still show up, even in Centreline mode.

Cheers,

Last post by mrsax2000 - February 23, 2021, 03:08:55 am
Dave, would it be possible to add an option to allow both normal and bold (thick) track center lines?

This would be nice for showing mainline vs sidings/yards.

If showing roadbed, then maybe revert to normal if it looks like too much.

Thanks,
Kurt

Quote from: Triple-C Railroad on February 22, 2021, 05:50:38 amMac.....Thanks for double checking it. You are right, I did cheat ;-) on some of the not quite aligned or perfectly fitting track sections. I'm actually doing two types of planning concurrently..... the AnyRail plan and also temporarily placing the track out on the tables to see how it fits and looks, especially against the backdrops and with some of the structures.  Once I'm happy with how it looks and as I experiment with various Unitrack sections, I'll go back and correct the AnyRail.  I know that sounds backwards....but I actually enjoy being able to test my design ideas on AnyRail, and then work out the kinks and details by trying different track sections on the table tops. Thanks!

May I recommend changing you grid size to 12 and keep the snap to grid to 1. This will not change your snap settings but will make the layout easier to see.

Uhm that is what I am just looking at. According to my calcs it is over 41m long!!! So probably not LOL! Have scaled down a bit and got it to 11m but still to long. Trying not to lose authenticity but don't think much choice in the matter.

I can cope with around 5m / 16ft. Also quantities bit extreme in that it is using 455 x R600's!

Bit ambitious for first layout one thinks. Any non obvious suggestions please? Thank you.
