2.3 The track context tabs
There are four context tabs for selected track items:
1. Single default track
When a single track item is selected, you will be shown a tab with specific information about this item. The caption of the tab tells what type of track is currently selected.
2. Single switch or crossing
When a switch or crossing is selected, the tab shown differs slightly from the default item tab. It has a special button to rotate the switch to connect differently to the other track.
3. Multiple items
When multiple tracks are selected, the information on the tab will show the number of items. On this tab you can manipulate the entire selection.
4. A section
When you select a section, a string of connected track pieces, the information on the left side will tell you the number of items and the total length. A section is selected by double clicking a track piece in it.
Switch tab only: Use this button to rotate switches and crossings to connect in an other way to the adjecent track.
