trackboard1.jpg

Where is my new contact,can not see it on trackboard.
I'm trying to make a new event but I guess I need to grab the contact from trackboard.
I've just upgraded my cs3 to version 2.0 and the menues/screen on cs3 have changed.
Is there any explanation how to do things in the "Edit article list"window?

I can see now how to drag the article window using the mouse. Thank you for that.

However I have failed to move any article to a track plan. If you have solved this I would like to know how to do this.

The help screen just talks about using drag and drop but it will not work for me.

Again it may be obvious to others but not to me.

Looking back at the manual it is not necessary. The new article screen is for improved management.

To add an article you click on the green button at the top of the screen and drag down the article list having chosen to edit a track plan. Then drag and drop any article as before.

What is interesting is the text option when you choose the menu item to add to a track plan.

In the new control desk you insert the text item. Then if you hold the mouse button down on the black marker a keyboard appears. If you insert the text into a track plan I could not find anyway to bring up the keyboard.

Adding text to a track plan and control desk now both work for me by selecting the text and holding the mouse button on the text symbol until the keyboard appears.

The new feature of showing events in the track plan band and the control desk is very useful.

I created an event for example to set the main tracks so that when you click on it you get a dot next to the event symbol which changes to green when the event has been completed giving me confidence that the tracks are clear for running a loco.

The control desk appears to me to emulate the panels you see for managing a real railway. Turnouts shown on the track plan and control desk both work.

I prefer the track plan as representing the actual shape of my layout but I might use the control desk to show all my events.

The problem I have with text and turnout and track sensor numbers is that they cannot be read unless you zoom in to the display. Still the wheel on the mouse makes this easy to do.
