When I click a blue route in Streets & Trips, it turns green. Why?

I have been using Streets and trips for 5 years and have never figured out what is happening to the route. When i click on a blue highlighted route as i am editing the whole route turns green. When i click on an open area the route turns back to blue. What function does this serve?

IFAIK clicking on the route changes the color from Blue to Cyan and all that is telling you is that you've highlighted/selected the whole route. If you double click on any one of the driving instructions above the map, that instruction will appear on the map in Cyan and the rest of the route will remain in Blue.

One of the most important features, of the many, many, that puts Streets and Trips streets ahead of Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs) is that when you want to modify a route to pass through selected towns or POIs you single left click on the route and the colour changes as you have described. Then when you single left click again on the route, hold and drag you can move the route as required.

This feature and more are explained in th excellent video training course on the use of S&T/MapPoint on the My Point Exactly web site. You can also get a copy of a S&T Cheat Sheet.

You have to register to access the training materials but it is free and you won't be hounded by emails.

Thank you for the answer and thank you Andrew for the extra info. I will check out your training materials. What you said about moving the route where i want it will be a great help in what we do. Our mag Parentingplus.com thank you
