I already did post this problem and had an answer of Tom Springer, but it didn't work the way he described. Therefore a new picture, which I am unable to post at the message or reply.

Kees,

Attached are some images of your layout. In image 1
Tillig_perikel 1.jpg
I've marked the 2 curved items as A and B.  These curved items are not identical.

In image 2

I've added a copy of the A curve, using the COPY then PASTE functions; it's marked C

In image 3

I have used FLIP to reverse the C curve item.

In image 4

I've replace curve B with the flipped curve C.  Looks to me like things line up.

So my question is, in your layout example, how did you create curve B?  Did you make it using the 'add parallel' function on curve A?  Add Parallel does not give you an identical copy of a piece of flex track; that is, the radius and length of the new piece is different from the original piece.

I did create curve B using the details of curve A. I didn't use Flip. David also explained to me the same solution.
Your great, guys. Thanks.

Greetz,
