  1. Hi, Yes, I think so as well. But thanks for your time and help, I always say that having more than one option is a good thing. Thanks again Eric
  2. Hi Goetz Thanks for doing this for me it looks straight forward to do so I think that this is the way to go. It will be a few weeks before I do this as I have started from scratch and once I have my tracks in place then it will be done. So keep your eye open for the big reveal, then I will start on my landscape. Eric
  3. Hi Goetz, Thanks for your reply, if I publish my layout to the online catalogue who can see it? Can you please tell me how to go about doing this perhaps as a numbered system eg? 1234 and so on, as this will help me enormously, there is no panic for doing this as I am going back to the eye hospital tomorrow and will be offline for 1 or 2 days. Thanks again, Eric
  4. Hi Thomas, I now have Box installed as well as 3d-M on both PCs. Now some questions. 1. How do I put a layout into Box? 2.Do I then have to move the layout from Box into 3d -M on the other computer and if so then how do I do it? 3. If this is the case then do I have to reverse the procedure after any extra layout work done? Thanks again, Eric
  5. Thanks again Thomas, I will have a look at those two cloud sites later. I have also had a look at save as on the 3d-m site but can't find where it says e.g. save to one drive. Eric
  6. Hi Curt, I also wondered about space on one-time as my daughter has had trouble storing photos and music on there because of lack of space. Please carry on with "to be continued". As Thomas has kindly replied with a solution then I will try both methods and then use the one which I prefer. Eric
  7. Thank you for your suggestion, yes I am using the Windows 10 operating system so there should be no problem. I take it that I use the save as option in 3d-modellbahn and then save to one drive? Thank you, Eric
  8. Curt that's brilliant thanks very much. Once I have seen the "to be continued" I will give it a try. This may be anytime up to a week as I am supposed to be getting my daughter's old laptop and time-wise how long is a ball of string. I will keep you posted when this all happens. Thanks again, Eric
  9. Thank you, Curt. Does this mean that with my layout being on my home PC after I have created a folder on the laptop any work done whilst out and about will then transfer back to my home PC and update the layout there? Please bear with me as all this I new to me and I am now in my mid 70s. Eric
  10. Good Morning everyone. If I logged into my account would it possible to access the same layout on both a PC and a Laptop thus allowing any work to be done say on the Laptop during a rail journey? Thanks Eric
  11. Thank you or does help. Eric
  12. Thanks again Goetz, All is now well and I now have a copy of my layout on the new baseboard to allow me to practice on, I did know about saving the extra copy under save as but it had never crossed my mind to do it until you mentioned it. You are a lifesaver. Eric
  13. Sorry to ask this but how do I do it? If I had asked this question weeks ago it would have saved me quite a lot of time. I have in the past redone my tracks onto a new board about four times now. So in future, the first thing to do is ask the question before doing anything. Looking forward to your reply, and thanks again. Eric
  14. Hi Goetz, Thanks for the reply. If, I delete the board will I lose my layout tracks, or can I save them? Eric
  15. I have at last made a river/valley and saved it, but I have decided that I need to place it in a different location. Can anyone please tell me how to revert the base board back to a flat surface without loosing the tracks to allow me to reposition the river/valley. Thanks, Eric
  16. Thank you, Curt, I will study it.
  17. Thanks, Goetz, I will take another look at the video and do it step by step and then hopefully I will get it to work. At least now at long last, I have made the valley for the water thanks to you. Eric
  18. Thanks for the reply Curt, That wasn't what I was thinking of, but it looks as though it would suffice. The video I have seen was by Goetz and he did it quite easily in one movement, but when I tried I get a rectangle that spills over the sides and doesn't follow the shape of the valley. So that now leaves the question, "How do I do your version, please"? Eric
  19. Hi I have formed a valley and want to turn it into a river. I have seen a video on how to do this but what I need to know is how to make the selected water follow the contours and length which is rather long in just one operation. Thanks, Eric
  20. I would like to say a big thank you to both Goetz and simonjackson1964 for all there help today. In the end, I used the method which Goetz said to try. Thanks again both. Eric
  21. Goetz, I have just tried something. I have put the layout in 2d mode got a new piece of track and yes it's at a different high from the track. The new price slides under the layout track, so this means that I need to lower the layout track or bring the board surface up to layout track hight somehow. Eric
  22. Goetz, As well as the board area being made larger I also made the thickness slightly thicker, perhaps this is the trouble. I that's the case then I have a problem as I don't remember what the original thickness was. I have just pulled two pieces of track out of the online catalogue and connected them with no problem, which makes me think that it's a thickness issue. Eric
  23. Thanks for your reply, Simon. Yes, on the track which I get from the online catalogue when I try to connect is blue its the red bars which are at the ends like when it's a track at the end of a siding or station terminus. I am using the paid version. Eric
  24. Hi Goetz, I just drag the next piece of track to the red end of one piece but both ends stay red. What do you need to see my layout, if it's my login details then I don't mind sending you them? Eric
