  1. It would be perfect to export SCARM railroad model to the *.dxf format. It will help to design the structure elements of the model in AutoCad and to prepare elements in the workshop.

  2. With the new version, it seems that you cannot change the altitude of roads anymore. Somehow that function has dissappeared.

  3. Unfortunately not with me :-) .

    Normally I see numbers (“0″) in the arrows when I add a road section, or when I select it. Now I don’t anymore.

  4. That is strange – the roads are using the same internal routines like the tracks and there is no reason the heights to work only for the tracks. Is this happening for particular track plan or also when you start a new blank project?

  5. As it seems the problem occurs with a new track plan. I’ve tried it with an existing track plan and no problem there. When I copy a road section from an existing plan to a new one, it doesn’t work either. So it seems only to occur with new track plans. The work around could be to start a new track plan in an existing one and then erase the old one (and save it under a new name of course :-) )

  6. There is something wrong in the setup or in the libraries in your installation. Are you using custom libraries? Can you make a screenshots of the whole SCARM window and send them to so I can see them too?

  7. I haven’t added anything other libraries than those that come with the installation. I did install the Model Trains Simulator though, but that one appeared to be inaccessable.after the installation.

  8. I received the screenshot. However, I need to see the road section and the start point when the heights are enabled.

    Please, place a road section, enable the heights, zoom to the start point and make one more screenshot. Then send it to me.
