Hi I just got my scalextric out from under the stairs and have been having a fun weekend.. I had it when Digital first arrived and have the old style 6car base v1.5 Seems that is seriously out dated... I came here to the forums to find some instruction on the base and found some without too much trouble (Thanks Rich I think posted some time ago)
I also saw links to UR3 so I got hold of that and have been having fun with track design.
However I can not seem to get a LH crossover curves to have the arrows point it the right direction. Am I doing something stupid/missing something or is this a bug?

Cheers

Ian

Hi Ian,

Assuming you have added the View - Toolbars - Track Operations menu of icons... (if not click in this order to put a check mark beside it)...

The first icon in the Track Operations toolbar reverses the track direction for all pieces. This usually helps align the arrows if you click it a couple of times until you get the direction you want.

The last icon in the Track Operations toolbar shows/removes the track direction if it is confusing you.

I hope that helps.

Cheers!

Hi Ian,

Welcome to The Forum and a Happy Christmas to you!


Another way to achieve this is hover the mouse pointer over the Icon of the curve you want; it will change to a curved arrow. If you are on the left side of the icon the arrow points left and to the right if you are on the right side. If you already have a piece or track laid, you should see a "wire" version appear on the join of that piece when you hovering.

It's easier to do than explain but once you get the hang of it it is quick and easy. Gordon's advice above is great if you need to correct a piece. If you do need to reverse a piece do not do it in the middle of a completed section as the track can jump all over the place. In this instance it is best to move one piece of track next to the one that needs reversing and when you have done reversing simply slot it back in place.

All the best - Greg
