That looks to be a good feature to have.

Whilst we are on the subject of pretty colours, I just wondered if it would be easy to change the colour of something already in existence. The flag showing which side of plain track is MAIN doesn't show up at all when you have a background image like a map or plan. Any chance it could be more visible, please? - but only if it is easy for you to do!

Hi Richard,

You can change any of the colours to whatever you want. :)

The easy way is to change the entire colour scheme by clicking the coloured button at the top left of the screen:

The "bright night" scheme is popular.

If you just want to change the plain track end marker, it is one of the guide marks. You can change the colour of just those by clicking this menu item:

For working over background maps and plans, a better option might be to change to a low-contrast grey image -- there is a conversion function on the background shapes dialog:

cheers,

Martin.
