Merging Throttle Windows
Throttle layout files can consist of a single Throttle pane (to control a single
Locomotive or consist address), or may contain multiple Throttle panes. In either case, when
opening a Throttle Layout file, JMRI will check to see if any existing active Throttle panes
are already open. If none are found, then the file is opened just like a simple layout
opening (explained above).
However, when one or more Throttle panes are already open on the screen, the program will
open up the following dialog box:
Figure 4-5: Merge Dialog Box
with 3 buttons:
- Merge - leaves the currently active open Throttle panes in place and
in addition opens the Throttle(s) contained in the chosen layout file.
- Replace - closes the currently active open Throttle pane(s) and opens
up the Throttle pane(s) defined in the chosen layout file.
- Cancel - cancels the "Open" request and closes this dialog.
Note: Do not confuse the action that is occurring here with any attempts
to overwrite your saved throttle layout files. The above actions have no effect on the actual
saved throttle layout files themselves. The only "merging" and "replacing" that occurs is
simply on your screen.
Open the Throttles Preferences pane.
