Timbers with Modified timber colour persistent even when template set no timbering

Hi Martin

I am ending up in a bit of a pickle whilst designing a complex junction. I am setting some of the timbers to the alternate colour selecting both "show in this colour" plus "and background templates". This works fine but if I set the generator to "use Skelton settings" and then regenerate. As expected all the normal sleepers disappear but the sleepers with modified colour are still shown. What is more troublesome is that if I set the template to "no timbering" the timbers in the alternate colour are still shown.

Why am I doing this - to mark chair positions according to David Smith's book that must land on a timber.

Hi,

This bug should now be fixed in update 227d. If you find any problems, please let me know.

If you are using version 227c, 227b, 226f or earlier, your copy of Templot should update automatically if you restart it and follow the instructions to install 227d.

Thanks again for reporting it.

cheers,

Martin.
