The EDIT Screen


Use the Edit Screen to create “Custom Control Panels” representing a part of your layout. When you've finished, switch to the OPERATING page to control elements like switches, power blocks and locomotives. A small layout may fit on one screen; medium and large layouts may require two or more screens. Additional empty screens are added automatically. You can pan and zoom the display, click here to learn how.

An empty screen or Custom Control Panel appears the first time you run the LCS app. To create or modify a Custom Control Panel, start by pressing the EDIT button:

Roster-Edit-WiFi-Green

The Edit screen appears. Elements of the Edit screen are shown below:

You are now editing the custom control panel. The Roster and Edit buttons change to Clear, Cancel and Save as shown below:

Clear-Cancel-Save
To keep the changes you made to your custom control panel, tap the SAVE button. Your changes will be stored and you’ll return to the OPERATING screen.

To discard the changes you made to your custom control panel, tap the CANCEL button. Your changes will be un-done and you’ll return to the OPERATING screen.

To delete the currently shown custom control panel and all its contents, tap the CLEAR button. A confirming message will be displayed. If you confirm, this custom control panel will be deleted and you’ll return to the OPERATING screen.

Naming your Custom Control Panel


Each custom control panel can have its own name, which defaults to “Your Road Name.” To change this, simply tap the name while in the EDIT page and enter a descriptive term, like “West Yard” or “Main-Line siding.”
