running 4.2 and it's impossible to interpose a TD at any of the signals, using either the "I" keyboard shortcut or the interpose button or by right clicking on signals. this only occurs on OCS signals so it might be related to a previous issue peter responded to regarding the panel signals display option where these signals have been drawn non standard.

can anyone else recreate this before I log it on Mantis.

Confirmed.

I've done a bit of digging and 21580 already applies and has been closed without a fix being possible.

Not sure that explores the whole situation as that only seems to explore the right-click on the signal option. Leaving the displayed signals to one side, is the set-up of the berths different under the OCS as compared with NX?. Following on from that, what is the underlying method that the TD Interpose button or the "I" key use to add text to a berth and how is that impacted by the display of the OCS signals?

I've just looked at it in demo mode. In OCS mode, the signals on the diagram cannot be interacted with at all, and everything is delegated to the simulated OCS board. The TD berths are invisible if not occupied, and (as is also normal in NX mode) cannot be interacted with when invisible.

However, I was able to right-click on an occupied TD berth and interpose into it.

Based on this, I think the problem can be solved by making blank TD berths visible, as is already usually done for approach and last-sent berths.
