Hello Michael,

Like I wrote to Alex: can you agree with using the automated import as intermediate phase?

I checked this at the first try of this import and it didn't cause noticable troubles. The only case I found is a new railway tunnel which was put into service very recently; it replaces the former parallel track on ground level. The reference ribbon is still at the former track at this location.
I will handle this section manually and check ProRail's logs for recent geometry changes.

I'm not familiar with WMS. Do you happen to have a screenshot? Thank you for the suggestion by the way.

Best regards,
