The Drag Mode is for tweaking short sections of a route. It allows you to move individual points by dragging them. If you use it with the Auto-Plot feature turned on it will also automatically replot the path between the green a red markers when you drag one of the points.
You can see a demonstration in our video tutorial on Editing Routes.
I would like to know the basics of using drag mode.
Hi, thanks for that. Will give it a go.
Hi Billy - The Drag Mode is designed for editing very short sections - it's not feasible to use this for long sections as it displays a draggable marker for every point in the selected section and this would cause the browser to grind to a halt if there were lots of points selected. For editing longer sections you can use the Replot Section feature (under the Plot menu). This works differently and will allow you to replot a section of any length. For further information have a look at our tutorial video on Editing Routes.
I'm trying to edit a route. However when I'm in drag mode I move the end point to where I want to be and the start point follows on about a km behind. Makes it impossible to change the route, where am I going wrong?
