shortened visibility of ways

Dear all,

If I have a way of 1000 meter to display. Since this lenth is way too long for the display, I wanted to ask whether you have an idea to show this way shorter on the screen, but with the effective data in the back.

When I shortened the way with drag and drop, the data is automatically changed in the back as well, what's wrong.


Thank you

There are two ways:


a) you change the scaling-factor of the frame: select in the frame Tools - Scaling factor. Change the scaling factor e.g. to 2.5, then the 1.000 meters track fits in the frame.


b) Select in the track the tab curve; uncheck "Transfer length", then you can change the attribute length and Plant Simulation don't change the length of the icon. You can then change the length by drag and drop and set the length in the tab attribute manually.
