Problems / Re: Update 6 left each time
Last post by David - Today at 04:03:23 pm
You could try that, although i do not fully understand yet how it would help!

The procedure is as follows:

- Find the location of your user objects. To do so, open the FILE tab, go to Options, then 'User objects'. The default location is: C:\Users\<YourName>\AppData\Local\AnyRail\UdoRepos500\

- Using the Windows Explorer, go to this folder. It might be hidden, so in the Windows Explorer, make sure to check 'Hidden items' in the View tab. Delete all the subfolders (named 1 1, G, H0, etc.). Don't delete the folder itself.

Now retry to download all the user objects from within AnyRail.

Hello David

Yes I am, Version 6.38.0 (May 6 2021)

I just checked and it is still the same. Should I try to delete all the User objects and start again? If so how do I do that.

When using Copy and Paste, section info is not preserved.

When I copied an entire plan over to a new layer in a new plan all the SECTION colors and SECTION NAME info disappear? I painted the entire plan with all layers "on".

Am I doing something wrong?

That's a bit strange! Are you using the latest version of AnyRail?

Each time I update the objects I seem to get 6 left. See attached screen shot. I have had this lots of times where there is always a certain number that keep saying they are uploading, it is always the same each time. Is there anything I am doing wrong?

I second Mark's request. Any chance we can have the remining Finetrax Code 40 N parts added to the library in the near future?

The bulbs in the 'Layers Pane' are just there to switch the visibility of layers on or off. You can't use this pane to move items to another layer.

Currently, all your track is in the '20 Storage Under' layer. This means that whenever the light bulb for this layer is on (or if it is the active layer), all track is displayed.

If you put your track in layers per level, you can easily switch the visibility of the level.

To illustrate this in your file, I have moved everything at height 0 to '01 Base', everything at height -100 to '20 Storage Under', and the slope to '10 Incline'. Furthermore, I've added a layer named '30 Benchwork' for the lines indicating the train table.

I hope this helps!

THANKS again David,
Slope, Height, Vertical Clearance are in my mind OK.
My understanding of the LAYERS was to separate any different Levels, from MY START of Anyrail, having trouble with LAYERS, was seen once and forgot, so I put up with Slope, Height, Vertical Clearance have helped me to know any of my PLANS better without LAYERS.
Now with THIS layout(3000mm x 2400mm) for a friend that is learning Anyrail, I thought I better Help him as much as I can.
THIS LAYOUT is a BASE(0mm), a DECLINE(0-100mm) a STORAGE YARD and TURTABLE(100mm), although not connected as yet but need be later somewhere, when my Friend decides on where and how much he wants.
It seems that I must be clicking every Layer or somehow a rather I seem to get MY LAYOUT in all LAYERs, doing something I should not be doing.
Now I think I will try again, I have for now got the BASE(0mm) hilighted so I might click "20 Storage Under" with its Bulb OFF, and take the Hilighted Base to "01 Base" then turn off the Base Bulb and go back to Storage, tag the DECLINE, then turn of the Storage Bulb, then click the Decline and that should have the 3 Sections, Base, Decline, Storage separated.
more later perhaps

I'm wondering if I understand correctly what you want.

First of all, layers are not the same as levels. You might have multiple levels in your plan, for instance a ground level, a hidden staging yard below it, and possibly a mountain track above it, so all having different heights (or elevations).

Layers are nothing more than sets of elements, for instance scenery, track, room layout, etc. Of course you can subdivide your track into several layers if that's convenient, but that's all up to you.

In your plan, it seems that all track is in the '20 Storage under' layer at the moment.

Now, if you want to move the area with the turntable to 'Base', select the track around there, and on the TRACK tab, select '01 Base' from the drop down list under 'Layer'.

The result is, that if you switch off the light bulb in the Layers tool (the pane with the list of all the layers) next to '20 Storage under', only the elements in the '01 Base' layer will still be displayed.
