    Another question related to deleting?

    1. Is it possible to delete public routes as well as private routes that I created?

    Hi Joel,

    I've had a look at your route.  The easiest way to delete the bits you want is to use the Delete Section button under the Plot menu.  So, for example, for the easterly section:

    1. Click the Delete Section button.

    2. Drag the green and red markers on the map (or on the slider at the bottom of the map), to just before and after the bit to delete (around 8.3 and 10 miles). 

    3. The section being deleted will be whited out and the a dashed line will be drawn as a preview of what this will be replaced with.

    4. Click the orange DELETE button at the top to go ahead with this.

     

    This is how it should look:

    Example of how to delete a section

     

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks...that delete feature helps.

     

    I 'm still having trouble editing the middle of a route.  Since you are an admin maybe you can help.  If you look at this route:

    //www.plotaroute.com/map/45

    you can see on the east and west "sides" of the route there is an out a back piece.  That is the section I'm trying to get rid of.  I mean, it's easy enough just to make again, but I'm trying to learn how to use the app.

    when I try to edit it alot of strange things happen, the entire route gets all messed up.

    let me know if you can take a look at it...it's probably just user error.

    Just a quick update - you can now delete routes from your My Routes list if you wish.

    To do this, click on the "Manage Routes" button on the My Routes panel (under the "More" menu on the route planner).  Then delete click on the delete symbol for the route you want to delete.

    Sorry, there isn't an option to delete routes at the moment - not sure how we missed that one!  We'll add this in the next couple of days and post back here.

    You can delete sections from the middle of a route by using the Delete Section or Edit Section buttons under the Plot menu.  We have short tutorial video on editing routes, which gives a demo of some of the route editing techniques you can use.
