With the introduction of Unified Driver/Surveyor, the Menu Bar is shared across both editing and driving modes.

In S20, the Menu Bar provides similar functionality as before, with the addition of new menu options under the Window Menu to toggle the visibility of the new Palettes.

What's Changed?

For users coming from Trainz A New Era or TRS19 Standard Edition, the Edit Train and Quickdrive options have now been replaced by the Unified/Driver Surveyor function. This is technically not a S20 feature, but is now a TRS22 feature.

Bulk Replace Tool

The Bulk Replace Tool and Random Scenery Tool are currently only available in Surveyor Classic.
Switch modes to use these tools and switch back to S20 when you're done.
You can also mimic much of the functionality of these tools with the Scrapbook Palette, the main difference being that to replace objects across the entire route, you need to use the Bulk Replace tool.

Map Options are now found in the Display Menu rather than under an on-screen menu.

New Grid Options

In addition to Wireframe mode, there is now a Grid Mode (i.e. the previous default mode), and a Texture Mode (which is the new default).
