Small mistake Suggestion Spelling/grammar correction[edit]

There’s a small mistake on the 6th row, as the ex line is shown “over” the regular one instead of “under” it. (I’d fix it myself, but I’m not touching with a ten-foot rod anything using tildes and backslashes.) Tuvalkin (talk) 14:32, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

@Tuvalkin: This is a limitation of {{Routemap}} (as well as the old series of templates), as the overlay mechanism doesn't allow superimposing an entire row of icons over another as the Norwegian (Bokmål) Wikipedia's templates do; and we can't really do anything about that without writing more module code. (It's not possible in the current layout, with the current template and with icons in the existing naming schemes, to have the closed track under the open track and to have   (kSTRc3) where it is at the same time.)

I meant to replace the   (STR) with a   (SHI1l) at the far side of the wye, allowing the branching to be symmetrical, drawn with a   (kABZr+2x1), and shifting the five 1st rows of the diagram a quarter icon to the left (of the viewer). Tuvalkin (talk) 18:18, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

@Tuvalkin: Like this? It needs a 2/4 shift. (But I don’t think it’s an improvement…) Useddenim (talk) 21:56, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
Yes, like that. I like it; not as good as the one on the page, but also no obvious glitch, as it has. Tuvalkin (talk) 18:38, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
