Hi Michael - that's good to hear. To select the position on overlapping sections on the route you can now use the Playback Slider above the map to move the Edit Marker.
I just tried this on a couple of routes it and I really like this capability.
I did run into one difficulty. On an out and back segment, that overlaid each other, I could not figure out how to differentiate between the outbound and return path. I was trying to place a marker on the return track and the outbound path was selected.
We've just released an upgrade of our route planners to support more accurate placement of directions, notes and annotations on your route maps. Previously it was only possible to attach these to existing points on the route, so if a point didn't exist at the exact location where you wanted to place the notes, you would either need to use the Reshape Route tool to create a new point there or place the notes at a different point on the route nearby. With this latest upgrade you can add or relocate directions to an exact location anywhere along the route. And to help you make this as precise as possible, the route planner will now display the distance above the edit marker as you drag it to the location on the route that you want to edit.
Also, as part of this upgrade we're pleased to announce that we've added the new Relocate Directions feature, which we introduced a few weeks ago, to the mobile version of plotaroute.com.
