How to move the track plan across the background grid?

Somehow I must have moved the trackplan (see screenshot) to the left over the grid.

How can this be moved back slightly to the right?

The easiest way, as long as ALL the track is connected, is to select a connection on, say, the left side, and enter the preferred X co-ordinate for it. All the track will move. To prevent it happening again, simply glue 1 piece. For example, I'm in N, and I generally set my layouit in such a way that the leftmost point is 25mm from the table edge.

Hi Nick, when I try to select any rail section it shows the section with a red bullet above it instead of green. What should be done?

Solved: as all track section coloured red I made a complete selection of the layout and used the "release" button. Now, when seelction just one rail, the layout moves accross the grid.

Glad you've fixed it! There's nothing worse than doing a lot of detail work and then finding that something has moved!
