When using our map creation tool on your desktop or laptop computer, you may notice that the AllTrails map layer features auto-routable dotted line segments.
- Hover your mouse over a dotted line to see how far the auto-routable segment reaches
- Click the dotted line and it will select the entire segment to make map creation quicker
Trails are typically broken into segments where they intersect with roads or other trail, however, you may not always want to select an entire segment. In order to disable auto-routing along a segment, hold down the 'Shift' key and click along the segment. When the shift key is held down two main things happen:
- Dotted line segments no longer auto route.
- You can also 'drag and draw' rather than having to 'click to draw.' Hold down 'shift' and drag to draw your route. This is a bit more fluid and can help create curves in your route.
