Getting Started

Getting Started with

1.1

Introduction
We've designed AnyRail™ to be as straightforward as possible. You can start experimenting with layouts as soon as you've installed the software. However, it’s probably a good idea to read through this Getting Started guide.

1.2

Setting up
The Settings tab enables you to set up AnyRail to suit your way of working. There’s a full description starting here 71 . Most of the default settings should be OK for now. However, you probably want to chose a measurement system and specify a work area right away.

1.2.1

Choosing a measurement system By default, all measurements are metric. However, you can change this. To specify a measurement system 1. Click the Settings tab:

2. Click Measurement system:

If you select "English fractional units", AnyRail shows all measurements using fractions, e.g. 20 ¾. If you select decimal units, the same value appears as 20.75. AnyRail accepts measurements in both formats, and rounds fractions to the nearest 1/32 of an inch. 1.2.2 Specifying a work area size In AnyRail, you can set the outer limits of your work area. To specify a work area size 1. Click the Settings tab. 2. Find the Work Area group:
