OpenRail Designer CONNECT Edition

Connecting the Points

There are several things to be aware of when connecting points. A connection is created by clicking on an unconnected point on one template then moving the mouse to a point on the other template; then clicking again. The connection line will be shown dynamically. To abort a connect, press the right mouse button.

The order of point selection is important, because the feature style that will be used when this particular line is created in the surface will be the feature style of the first point selected.

A connection can be deleted by right clicking on it and selecting the Delete command from the pop-up menu.

You can change the position of a template by right clicking on one of its points, selecting Move Template, and dragging the template to a new location on the screen. This, along with windowing commands, allows you to get a better view of the connections. This is particularly useful for complex templates.

A template point can be connected to more than one point on the other template.
