Version 6.7
« on: June 01, 2017, 06:03:26 pm »
Hi all!

In version 6.7, the following things have been added:

- User object viewer. You'll find it in the User objects tab. It does not 'autoload', as that may take quite some time, so click the 'Load' button first. If you wish, you can enter some letters in the 'filter' box, as some sort of primitive searching. If you double click an item, the relevant library will be opened for you.

- Selection details list. If you've selected some track items, right-click the selection and select 'Details' from the popup menu. This will give you a list with the length of each track item, and the position of the endpoints. This can help if you transfer your plan onto the train table without printing it 1:1.

- Remove symbol outlines. If you've drawn a symbolic control plan (using the 'Symbols' from the Track libraries tab), you can now remove the outline of the tiles by unchecking the 'Outline' box when you select the tiles.

We've updated the following track libraries:
- H0 Peco Streamline code 83
- H0 Fleischmann Profi
- H0 Bachmann E-Z Track (6.7.1)
- O Peco code 124
- N Tomix Fine Track
- N Kato Unitrack (6.7.1)
- N Arnold library split (6.7.1)

As an bonus, the Russian and Japanese (6.7.1) translations are improved in a few places.

Enjoy if you find some time away from your barbecues!

David.

Update 6.7.1. solves an issue with downloading the user objects.

David, great job on the new user objects viewer!  Especially like that it only shows the objects from libraries in the selected (active) scales.
