Layer Drive Side Properties

If your layer's default drive side is set to project default, it will initially conform to that of the country chosen when defining your project's location. This value can be changed at any time from within the Project Settings.

It is also possible to specify either left or right drive side from the outset when adding a new transport layer, or later when drawing 2-way track with the draw tool.

N.B. Access to drive side selection via the 'Add Transport Layer' window is only available after creating a project, by selecting "Add Transport Layers" from the Layers panel
