My first track plan, with issues

Understood.  Autoconnect would force the track to align when you want it to stay put.  I just re-read that part of the manual.  It's not a feature I have used - I have generally just left autoconnect set to on and use flex-track when needed. I realise that is not always an option.

The defaults for the tolerances are 3mm and 3 degrees.

For a large scale as LGB, you could perhaps increase the distance a little bit, but I would advise against increasing the allowed angle too much.

In the example by Magnus, H0 scale track is used. An allowed distance of 20mm and an angle of 5 degrees is way too much. Your trains will derail.
So please make the rigid sectional track fit better somehow, or use flex track.

General advise: leave Autoconnect on, and only switch it off to close small gaps you may be left with when using rigid sectional track.

Thanks David, I only set the tolerances so high to ensure that was not the problem I had. I agree with your recommendation as that is what I normally use.
