From the forthcoming version 5.3 of the Loader you will be able to customise the Train List, the Show Timetable window, and the Simplifier via CSS in the Options window. A reference to the elements available is in the Wiki.

This won't be the final version as I'm sure people will want some new features, which can be discussed here.

Version 5.3 is now available via the updater.

Can I draw members attention to these two wiki pages:

Where do I edit the CSS?

What fields can I edit?

if I modify the CSS to use a non standard font (I have all the historical BR Fonts installed on my laptop) will it still recognise them?

Works fine as long as you get the font name correct.

Managed it with Gill Sans MT for the authentic heritage look.

Ramping up the difficulty level I see. Not only do you need to route trains the right way, but you need to work out the time as well!

Whilst this is helpful it is not immediately obvious to me where I go to start the edit process.

I think you may need to put it in words of one syllable for all of us non-developer types.

Do I need an external CSS editor? Where do I find "the tab" and the such like.

I'm by no means computer illiterate but I can't immediately see how we perform the editing process.

It's under the F3 options menu, on the Tab labelled CSS.

It's probably more obvious without the direct link, as you find the page via the Wiki page on editing your options. https://www.simsig.co.uk/Wiki/Show?page=usertrack%3Assrun%3Afunc%3Af3

For some experimental playing around, it might be an idea to start with the simplifier, since you can use the "Show in web browser" button to load the HTML in your favourite browser and then use its developer tools for playing around with the CSS and getting some immediate visual feedback.

Is it possible to remove the 'Status' row from the 'Show Timetable' window using the CSS? I'm happy with my current solution of setting the background and text colours the same, but I'd prefer a full removal if possible.

Easy. Just figure out what the id is, then do something like tr.status{ display: none;}

Ok, it wasn't quite easy, since you the status class is only applied to the header cell.

THIS will work:

th.status, th.status+td { display: none; }

Thanks; I used:

th.status{display:none} td.status{display:none}

which had the desired effect.

For some reason the borders of the neighbouring cells don't properly merge, though, so I'm left with an extra-thick border between "Characteristics" and "Last reported delay". Has anybody had more success in that regard?

Out of interest, will people be able to share their set ups that can automatically update it or will it still require manually inputting.

You will need to do it as a manual replacement. But that would take mere seconds to do a select, copy the code, and paste the code into the F3 CSS tab

I have it in mind to mess about with the F2 trainlist design and have in mind something like the attached (done with the help of MS Paint) which would incorporate use of the SimSig font installed on my computer, the idea being to try and imitate the train list screens you get in signalboxes. In order for this to work, however, the writing would always have to be in capital letters: how would I go about achieving that?

And if you don't like the outcome (or cock up with the copy/paste stuff) there is a button to revert to the default settings which is an instant return to the standard settings.

A quick google found this:

text-transform: uppercase;

The values 'lowercase' and 'capitalize' can also be specified.

Might need a tinker with that then, thanks guys :-)
