    @ Bob Sparkes.

    The automatic directions sometimes say "Turn left" (or "Turn right"), when the route clearly goes right (or left). How can I edit the Directions and delete the ones that are not helpful?

    By a Plotaroute design I did not notice false direction indications.  May I ask ? At planning do you place the control points far enough away from street or path junctions ?  (Never click on top of junctions)

    Bob, thanks, I got confused actually, I wanted to mention John, not you. Thanks for the reply though. I know how to add new direction points, as well as edit the "Notes" and the "Symbol", but not the direction change ("PointType", such as Left, Slight Left, Continue, etc.), nor the "Name".

    Once I had followed John's advice (of Dec 22nd), I was able to edit Directions exactly as required. I also found out how to add new Directions at places where the direction of the route had changed, but the automatic Direction indicator had not notified anything.

    Hi Bob,

    (not the OP) I seem to be able to change only the Notes, but not the direction nor the name of the course point (these are exported as Name and PointType in the tpx file, respectively). Unfortunately, my GPS device (Lezyne) seems to ignore the Notes, and displays only the direction and the point name.

    Furthermore, it seems that any non-ascii characters are discarded for the point name. Not sure if that's intentional or not.

    Hi Bob,

    You can edit directions by clicking on them when in edit mode in the route planner - select the route for editing and click the "Edit This Route" button at the top of the route planner map.  Then  click "DIR'NS" in the action menu on the map, click on the direction you want to change and edit the text accordingly.
